What options do I have other than Ape's

On my 2011 Road Glide Ultra I had Sinister what I heard called Beach Bars.

Now I am not a fan or Apes or mini Apes or any of the bars that look like them.

But I am not happy with my stock bars on my RGU CVO either so I would like suggestions for other bars.

This is the closest that I come to liking an Ape style bars.

Or this if I can't come up with something else.

I could always go back to the DBC bars but I would like to try something different on my new bike. Nothing more than 12" tall and that might be pushing it for me.

Blasphemer!!! I’ve seen these before. Adjustable angles. I like my CVO bars w the pin pulled & rolled forward. But the wrist angle seems a little off sometimes and find myself pulling hands off grips a bit to reposition.

I have the 14” version of the KlockWerks Kliphangers on my 17 RGU and I love them! I tried the 10” version and they were too short for me (I’m 5’10, 29” inseam). If you decide to order them, talk to Alan Bainbridge and tell him I sent you...

My buddy has these or something similar to them on his soft tail. He loves them.

May want to check out the factory 47 riviera bars. They look much like the factory bars but taller.

I have Carlini Bag Drags on my 2010, very comfortable, I like them a lot, theyÂ’re a beach bar style, but not too wide.

I recently had FMB Choppers make me a set of bars to the exact measurements I wanted, as I couldn't find 'off the shelf' bars that met my preferred dimensions. I do prefer higher bars vs wide, and the unicorn horn/meat hook is a fad I will wait to fade away and become 'something they did in 2010'

Check out HD's Chizeld Low Bars - 10 Inch in Height but the grips are at 9 inch with some very mice pull back - Ran them on my '17 and my '18

Or get nutty and jump on the trend with T-Bars or even Flat Track Bars......seen them both and while not my particular brand of vodka.....they do play well for some

If I wasn't so in love with my F47 bars, I would have these.
