Heritage bars on 2011 RGU w/pics

Had black Heritage bars installed on my RGU today, what a difference! Look very sharp, got about 2 inches of pull back compared to stock, and very comfortable. You can adjust the height to suit your taste, but "rolling" the bars up or down had very little effect on the fore and aft position. I kept mine about the same height as stock, hands are still in the pocket (no wind).

You going to get new black mirrors or maybe powder coat /paint the chrome ones ? Don't the chrome mirrors look out of place now ?
I'm starting my Handlebar job tomorrow (same as yours) and was just thinking about what to do with those chrome mirrors.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I'm gonna leave the mirrors as is. Lots of black in front already, I want the chrome in some areas to keep it shinny.

That's my debate too. I'm thinking of black heritage bars but what to do with the mirrors and levers. I thing some contrast is great but don't know the line in the sand. Black mirrors and chrome levers? Black levers and chrome mirrors? Change back and forth every month!

not a knock in any way but I think if you go black bars you need black mirrors and levers.

Black Heritage bars with black Tribal mirrors. About to swap to black levers. I went Tribal on the grips also. I think I want mostly black and let the ferrules and such really stick out. Just a thought.

It's nice to have some chrome to shine and sparkle, but I'm finding it hard NOT to black out the bike since I put my black bars in (WO515b)...its like its got a mind of its own!
I'm leaning towards black grips, mirrors and levers...then I'm done...I think with the Black!
Bars looks great. Good luck not catching the "Black Plague"

I'm going with the chrome Heritage bars, did you do the install? Dealer quoted me around $200 total for the bars and install.

That's the same set-up I have. Blk Heritage bars, tribal mirrors and grips, and black levers. Then again, most of my bike is black.....as the wise federal prison poet Wes Snipes said "always bet on black"...
