Default Apes on the Street Glide?

So I am looking to install some apes on my 08 street glide. Never had apes on a biker so don't know much about them. I do know that I want to keep the apes as close to the fairing as possible. Anyone who can point me in a direction with a brand or post some pictures please do. So far a guy at the local dealer recommended the 13" ape from Cyclesmiths or even the 16". What are your thoughts and suggestions, thanks.

Nick

I went with the yaffe monkey bagger bars.&nbsp\\; Over all I love them but they are 1" taller than advertised.&nbsp\\; They are supposed to be 12"s but we measured and they are 13"s which put them over the fairing a little more than the pictured ones on his website.&nbsp\\; Internally wiring the bars is a biotch with the sharpe angle at the top but once you get the wires in everything else is a piece of cake.&nbsp\\;

Here's 13" Cyclesmith's on my glide.I think they look pretty good.If you go with 13's,you'll need +6 on all cables and brake lines.No need for wire exstentions,there's plenty of length in stock wires.
