handle bags seem soft

The bars on my road glide are tight in the cradle but when i ride it they seem to be a little spongy when riding. I know that they are rubber mounted or is it just my mind. Or should i be looking into it more.
Thanks for any info

Do you have other then stock bars? If so did you replace the rubber riser bushings with Poly bushings? Rubber bushings will wear out faster with taller bars. The poly bushings are stiffer...

Either way check the bolts at the bottom (under side) of the riser. I just added APES and the poly bushings needed to be tightened after 200 miles. Mine must of seated more since the install...

Hope this helps.
