Mounted EMGO Magna Hawk bars

I just mounted a set of low rise bars today and can't wait to try them out.

Thanks Dave! That's exactly the look I was going for.
I really like the feel of them too, but still need to test ride and adjust cables if needed.

Picked them up from motorcycle-superstore.com shipped for $40
They have a 4 1/2" center and I may shave 1/16" off the outer edge of the top clamp to allow it to seat full.

They do look good, but the stock bars are absolutely perfect for me. The seat is also about as close to perfect as you are going to get, and the seat/bar/peg relationship couldn't be better. It is a natural riding position with no pressure points anywhere. That is the reason I bought my second Vulcan 750, even after finding out about all it's problems with the first one. I have never owned a more comfortable motorcycle. I recently sold a bike (Ninja 500 with bar risers) because the bars were too low. I am unable to support any weight at all with my arms for very long, so the lean forward position is not for me.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Yeah I find the stock bars very comfortable. I have mine slightly angled back toward rider and love them there. I was looking at the bars on the Virago 1100 and the Intruder 1400 (a bike I thought I'd have to own someday) and I think I'd have to change the bars on either bike if I acquired one.

I've found that those two cruisers are rated at pretty much the same horsepower as our 750s ... but of course they have significantly more torque.

I agree with the seat and pegs, but I like the slightly sporty feel of having my forearms level with a slight lean fwd. My other bike is a Ninja 250 and I can ride it all day. My wife is tiny, so she doesn't add much load while braking downhill unless it's a slow bumpy downhill twisty, then my hands go numb.

So, I took 'er out for about 20 minutes after work today and feels great. has a natural feel and I find corners more enjoyable. I did a couple hard brakes and swerves just for reassurance. The only drawback I notice thus far is my shoulders now cover some of the rear view. I've been thinking of tapered mirror anyway... any input on what fits well?

I have tapered on mine but they're short shaft so what I'm planning to do is to try offset risers. There's a bunch on ebay for between 15 and 20 smacks. They'll lift the mirror a couple of inches and kick them out a little depending on where you lock them down.

.... bar end mirrors would look pretty sweet on there too. There's my 2 cents and some extra from under the mat...
