Best Bars for 5' 10"?

Here are the specs on Stock Handle Bars.

FLTRXSE CVO Road Glide Custom 2013:

Bar Diameter: 1-1/4"
Height: 8"
Width: 32"
Pullback: 15"
Center: 8"
Clamp Area: 5" one piece

I can pound the bike thru the twisties with ease and comfort with these stock bars, BUT would like to try something different, something with a fatter diameter for a different look while not losing the aforementioned "ease & comfort". I'm considering an ape style as well as the pullback drag style similar to these:

Carlini Bag Drag 1.50":


What say you maniacs?

I'm not from Maine, but I'll share my thoughts

I'm 5/10 with a 32 inseam as well.

I went with the BR custom bars.. meat hooks.. 13h

Sits me more upright, for a much more comfortable ride. With stock bars I found myself slouching over to much. Those bars don't look like they would make enough of a difference...imo

Khrome Werks Heritage Stretch.

I am about the same size. I liked the Heritage Style, from HD, but wanted just a bit more. These fit with stock cables, but you do to relocate the clutch cable.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Look at the Khrome Werks 2+2 Sweepers, I'm also 5'10" and they are sweet. Plus no cable changes just re-route the clutch cable.
