First off you have a nice bike. i have that exact same HD leather jacket. NICE!

I'm 6'1 inch. I do ride a Limited and the handle bars are a little different than on the road glides. I have ran both Wildone WO578's and Yaffee 10 Monkey Bars. Both move my hands up from what i call a very low stock bent forward position to arms straight out and posture upright and comfortable. I'm sure you can go TALL and lose leverage but the height I go with which is just at the top edge of the fairing GREATLY increase the leverage and control over stock.

Ride safe

Ride safe

because the stock bars force your elbows to point at the ground, I was taught racing as a little kid, elbows up! the stock bars are horrible!! not because they are low, but because of the bend. forcing you into a terrible riding position.

yes they are for sure above the glove boxes, hands ar just below center of the speakers, but you canít open them very far with the bars straight

These only come in one rise, right? Is the wrist angle better than stock?
