Wild 1 Chubby WO517 RG

Anyone familiar with these bars? They are promoted by Wild 1 to be built specifically for Road Glides and does not require cable modifications.

I have W1 517s and love them. The hand position is different in that it's more like a wheel barrow. The hands are at 7 and 5 o'clock with the 517 bars. I'm 5'-10" and the pull back and elevation are perfect. The stock cables (including TBW) are long enough. I ran my wiring internally for a cleaner look. Rider and side view pics are in my photo album.
