Any opinions on different Drag Bars being offered ???

I am 6' 2" Tall with long arms.

I am looking for the best bars for my height / reach.

Anyone have any pictures with bars on the Bike ????

Thanks

Mike

I have the HD Drag bars. I'm 6'2" also, with long arms and the drag bars are a big improvement. They move you an inch forward and inch down, but the biggest difference to me was the hand position. The bars that were on mine at dealership originally were like typical pullbacks and put your hands at about a 45 deg. angle. The drag bars put your hands at almost horizontal position, which I prefer. Always seems to allow you to relax your hands and just rest them on top of the grips, rather than have to squeeze the grips to keep your hands on the bars.
Course that's just my opinion. :)

When they say 1" forward, does that mean towards the rider or away from the rider ????

Also, how is the HD version considered a "Drag Bar", I think of a "Drag Bar" as a straight bar, like the HD Night Train has on it ????

1" further away from you Mike. Dont know why it's considered a Drag Bar, all i know is it puts my hands and arms in a similiar position to what I had with my last bike, which was a Nighttrain.
