6" Yaffe Monkey Sport Bars for Road Glide
 
Any one running these bars on a 15 and newer road glide? If so can you post pics and comment on how you like them? Possibly some pics with you on the bike showing the riders position. Do they hit the inner fairing at full lock being lower than stock?

Love mine, make it feel more direct & nimble plus good aero as hands tucked behind shark nose, will still need to sort ideal screen /seat combo to work with your body stature

Position of bars here is about as far forward as they go, on full lock left turn they just touch on right inner just below screen

Never been into the Apes thang

Thanks! I've always admired your bike! By chance do you have a side profile pic with you on the bike? Just trying to get feel for what position will be like.

Are you guys fairly short? While they do look nice I would be in hell riding with bars that low.

I'm 5'9" Not in to tall bars. My 3 options are the Yaffe Sport bars, Yaffe Monkey Bars in 10" or the HD Chizeled Lo

I’m right at 6’ tall, I can’t see sitting there leaning back hanging on a taller bar, that and I just think a tall bar looks funny on a bike with a fairing, I grew up and still do race dirt bikes, I’m just used to having a lower bar, anything tall you lose all your leverage over the bike.
