New here but have some miles on me...

Hi all, have read many of the posts here re fittment of bars to guys my build...
5'9". 32" inseam, 225. New 2013 R Glide Ultra owner. Coming from a 2001 heavily modded R King. Had 12" Chubby apes and it fit good. Mind you, had a low thin Corbin. Wife loves the stock seat on new ride so that ads 2"? Plus I'm running a sheepskin... I need height and pull back without the turn in of the 515 bars or the Harley 10" bars. Tried both today and felt they were 3 to 4 inches low and would have to be pulled back so far from matching the angle of the forks they'd look goofy... I need to change these bars NOW. On cross Canada trip and can call ahead to To have parts waiting. Want to order tomorrow and install three four days from now. Any longer lead time needed puts em out of the running. Suggestions?
