Roland sands Bars

So i have put the Roland sands bars on my bike and i love um (if you look at the pics of my scoot you can see um
I found some pics on the web that shows the who ,what ,where when and why
I read this artical in hot bike and bought them
I did that because i didnt have to change cabels, did it in a couple hours
This is not my bike but photos they did from the install shoot but its the same deal
Hope it gives you all some perspective
They are pricey 350.00
(but you save it on using stock cabels and wires 80-90.)

How tall are these? I am thinking about going with the Yaffee 10" Monkey bars, just as pricey and no cable changes.

They 9.75 high But look at the grip position as well
These have a better position in my opinion that the Yaffe bars ,less drop and pull back I had a pair and sent them back .I know guys that have and they liked these better but you can get used to whatever you have
I also installed a Corbin seat and this is my 5th bagger soo I knew what would work best for me
In the pics this guy has the bars forward I keep mine lined up with my forks

Blacktopr.... You got these on your bike? If lined up with the forks, would they hit the a x-tra tall windsheild that H.D. sells? I asked Chainsaw about the Yaffe bars clearing, and he said they thought they would. Post a Pic or 2. I like these bars and its a good shot of the stock bars in comparision. What Hot Bike Bagger issue is that? Whats the diferences IYHO,... between these and the stock bars? Patiently waiting on my Yaffe parts and want MORE! LOL!

Keep in mind that these were designed for the glide .If you look at the pics they are narrower in the middle (like the old dyna wide glide bars)
If thet are following the fork line you are ok The pull back is diferent as is the drop so i would say no
LOL ,I realize that I gave you no more information sorry man

Thats Cool, I did check out your garage and they look good on your bike. Anyway, RSD has some killer stuff. I really like your Bars. Hopefully Yaffe will call this week and say everything has been painted and is being shipped!If I got enough money left I'll buy some 10 inchers.

thanks for the tip and pics of the Roland Sands bars. I ordered the same for my new '10 glide today. I have a '06 with stock bars and have never been totally comfy with them but haven't seen anything I really wanted to install until I saw your pics. Also doing a performance engine mod - 103" with SE heads, forged pistons, tuner etc etc., extended bags, other stuff. Can't wait!
