Arrow My pick: Wild1 515b 10" apes

Ordered today

After 2 months of reading posts and comments and so much more...
Finally decided to go with the WO515b 10" apes "Black Out" series.

Lot of you guys (& gals) have great bars but I was influenced by 2 forum members style:
Slaterman5 and Sportyguy69; thanks guys for answering some of my PM's.

Follows is a link to a series of photo's on an RG09. Click HERE

Tech tips for 08 RG and Up: Click HERE
GTK Fact:
BARS INSTALLED ON PRE 2008 TOURING MODELS (ROADKING, ROADGLIDE) NEED TO REPLACE THE TWO SEPERATE HANDLEBAR CLAMPS
WITH A SINGLE ONE PIECE CLAMP FROM YOUR LOCAL DEALER.*HD PART #55918-08.
Will post pics once set up once is done. Can't wait!
Cost 219.95$
***EDIT***
Added side by side PIC (More pics on page 3 of this thread)

Think you made a great choice Peter! I eventually want to go with the WO515b bars too (I've been staring at that '09 example bike for months!) but will probably have to make a side trip with the Heritage style bars first because of costs.

Can't wait to see your completed pics! Although ... if you were a truly giving member and mod, you'd also put up many detailed INSTALL pics! No pressure, of course ...

Unfortunately I'm "Mechanically Challenged" so the work will be done at the Stealers! One day I hope to learn enough to do more of my own mods...but will be some time b4 I venture that route

Will do Slate.
The deal breaker between the 515's and the 517's for me was the angle of the wrist placement. I like to keep my wrist straight and not bent at an angle.
I'm 110% confident in the choice Look forward to test it and review for you all.

Damn it man. I thought I had it all figured out with the Outlaw Z, but those shots of the 09 with 515s now have me doubting myself. Will those with the 515 bars please post pics and tell why you like em...or don't? Thanks a ton.

Awesome ride. Bars look great with the RG. They flow with the lines better than the Outlaw Z, but those that have them love em. At this rate I won't ever pull the trigger.

Hey Don L,

I can't tell from your signature picture if you are an Outlawz guy or 515. Which is it and how much do you love it?
