Suggestions about Handlebars & Mirrors

I love my 09 FLTR but I hate the handlebars and the mirrors are usless, I have to lean so far forward that it hurts my hands, shoulders, back & neck.
When trying to see behind me or to make lanes changes all I see is my shoulders in the rear view mirrors. I'm really on a tight budget so I'm looking for a way to fix it the first time and not trial & error to get the best fit.
I'm 6'1" tall with average length arms and using the stock seat.....

Sounds like Heritage bars are right up your alley. They are really cheap, and from every review I have read are a huge improvement over the stock bars.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

Chainsaw is right. Get the Heritage bars. Sounds like you and I are about the same size and the Heritage bars are MUCH better for guys our size.

Id have to agree with the rest on the Heritage bars. I just removed a set. Good bang for the buck.
