Default Mini Apes on a Low Rider???

Just curious if mini apes work out well on a Low Rider. Anyone running them?

The mini apes have worked well for me I have an 05 FXDLI with the narrow glide front end
I used 1" straight risers and only changed my front brake line, I Had to re route the clutch cable and it is at its max, I also re route switch wire looms, for bars but I also bought the plug and play wire extenders and never used them. I have had no problems in 4 years of use with thw mini apes

I have an 07 Street Bob with stock mini apes. My gf has a 00 Lowrider with stock buckhorns. I'm 5'9" she's 5'1". She hates my bike - feels like she has to reach UP to grab the grips. I like both bikes, but have to say that riding hers is less tiring on long trips. I love the look of my apes but if I were doing any distance riding on a regular basis (I have an Electra Glide for that ) I'd swap to a shorter, more ergonomic bar.

Mine are 12" with 1.5" risers.....I like 'em. Sits me up straighter (short guy with a bad back!) & I'm much more comfortable now.
