Newbie to RG. Help with choosing handlebars

Just got a 2015 Road Glide Special. I hated the stock seat on the RG and just got the Lepera Maverick DLL which sets me back an additional 2". Although I haven't ridden with it yet, sitting on it seems to put me in a more comfortable position. I don't like the stock bars and have been looking at several options from the monkey bars, factory 47, klock werks kliphanger, and kst's in either the 12" or 14" rise--I like the look of all those bars but not leaning one way or the other. I think the 14's are a little too much rise but all the threads i've been reading say to go with the taller bars when choosing between two sizes, I'm 6'1" and 220lbs. So my questions are: Is there anybody out there about my size that is riding on the lepera DLL or any other seat that sets you back with either 12" or 14" rise bars that can give advice? Also, since I'm sitting back an additional 2" and would possibly need to roll the bars closer to me because the bars I'm looking at have a 7" to 8" pullback. Any thoughts on rolling the bars closer so that they are not in line with forks? Any experience with this is appreciated.
