Welcome to the tank from north Florida!

I'm looking to upgrade the bars on my 2020 as well. At 6' I keep thinking 12" because I don't want them too high, but everyone tells me to 'pick your bars and go 2" higher.' I've heard the ideal height is hands level to your shoulders while riding, but that is all subjective and personal.

Welcome from Colorful Colorado

See if your dealer has some bikes set up with higher bars for you to try out. One of my local dealers had a set up where you could place the bars on the bike to try out.

I originally had 13" apes and I wished I would have went with 16" apes.

I sold the 13" apes and installed 16" apes with steel lines.

For me the 16" apes are spot on perfect.

Everyone is different on what they like but i'm sure 14" apes would be perfect for you.

Good Luck

Welcome, from New York, to The Greatest Forum on The Internet!
Congrats on The New Glide.
As was stated previously go to your local Dealer or Bike Night to check out the different size bars.
Most people that go 12 wish the went with 14ís.
Best of Luck.
