thoughts on road 6?

not happy with my bars now and saw the holy rollers and think they might be a better fit. currently running Vindikta which are shorter than most and very wide. thinking of the factory 47 but they are very wide as well. these are narrower and look really good but they are only 1 1/4 vs the 1.5.

just looking for some feedback from those of you who have them.

I have the Road 6 Standard Apes on mine. I called them with my questions and they were more than willing to talk candidly about their products. Give them a call with your concerns. Quality wise I have no complaints and the wires pulled relatively easily through the the 1.25 inch tubing. Haven't had 1.5's so can't speak to that. They also have a video specifically on wiring the Holly Rollers on their site. Cool removable end caps to make wiring easier.

I have 11" Standard Apes. I called and talked to them before ordering. Helpful and pleasant people. I did not want a wide bar, and as I recall these were relatively narrow. I've been happy with them for three years.

I have the 13" Frisco apes on mine,, just switched from the 11". The 11" ride and look like a 12" bar, and were super comfortable. I just like to change stuff up.
Super easy to wire, excellent build quality. Great company to deal with. I highly recommend them.
I'd sell the 11s if you want to try them out for half the price of new.

The Road 6 standard ape (13") was the first bar install I did on a Road Glide (my 2015). They stayed on the bike for almost 3 years before I changed them out. Nothing but good things to say about the Road 6 bars. Installation was a breeze, fit and finish were good. Zero complaints.

Had the 11 standard apes on my 15 RGS. No issues with them, now I am running the 13 standard apes on my RGU. No issues with the wiring and for me very comfortable.

Probably one of the easier installs for any Ape's. Nice bar not very beefy but I like mine.

I put a set on my cousins 16. 13" standard. Breeze to wire up. Fit and finish were awesome.
