Heli horizon bars

Is anyone riding with the Heli Horizon bars on their bike? I saw and tried them out in Daytona this year and I'm interested in any feedback who has experience with the on an RG. I like the thought of being able to do the multiple easy adjustments when wanted. They have the powder coated one in daytona. The price is way to high, but I really liked the feel of the bars.

thanks in advance

yeah I've looked at the options and have already changed mine out to blacked out heritage bars. Just looking to see if anyone is riding with one right now and get some feedback from them. I just like the thought of extreme flexibility with these bars, what can I say??

Those bars really got my attention to, until I saw the price. If they could figure out how to get the price down, I think they could sell a bunch.

Such is the rule of honor.

They are $850 for a set of bars and the link is below. Yes that is a bunch of cash.

Saw them in Daytona at the HD dealership vendor area by mainstreet and sat on the bike in the picture. It was just a very comfortable fit. As I said I like the idea of being able to change the positions as I want to.

Heli Hell

I've used Heli bars on two Honda ST1100s over the years. The problem is they do not come with etching or markings on the joints to aid setting both sides the same. With various injuries, aches and pains I can get them to feel right, go for a ride and be on the side of the road adjusting. It is a good product but if you go for them lay some masking tape along a steel ruler, make some close increment marks on the tape and then wrap the tape on the tubes as the tubes are laying in the same position on a flat table. That should help.

Of course, if the ones for the FL has markings of some sort, never mind.
