Good looking Scooter. If I changed my rims I would for sure go spoke. Looks great.

I'm 5'10 and went with 13 inch bars. I'm pretty happy with them. But would go an inch or two higher if i did again. The best mod i ever did also. Good luck in deciding.

Im 6', and have 14" bars. 16 would have been ok too prob, but I didnt want the blood to run from my hands on long rides so i stayed at shoulder height.

6'3" standing upright
6'2" with slouch after back operation and nerve damage to hip
6'1" in the near future after another operation

16" apes and flat-out love them. Absolutely no more aches and pains
after 200 mile days, let alone 500 plus mile days.

That's one interputed law as they go....was told in 02 by friendly LEO in SD that "as long as they fit under an overpass" as since and in the past I suspect you stand up on your boards;) or flat footed next to the bike...an for the hands...you tell me...they want and expect to see your hands:rolleyes:

I'm 5'10" with 14" Carlini Evil apes. Sit right at shoulder height, maybe slightly above when slouching.

5' 8" with 14" Burly Gorilla Apes. Canted forward slightly. Stock seat from an '07 Street Glide. Puts my hands right at shoulder height but i think that if i got stopped by Jonny Law id prolly have to sit extra straight-up to be legal. I love 'em! Perfect height and look badass.
