Don't forget a good skull and crossbone paint job along with some of those chrome spikes like they have on dog collars. That be "badasss" too..........






I Think if you go over 11 inches you need to get new brake lines and a longer clutch cable...

damn bro, owning a motorcycle is about image, maybe your just fuglybastard. lol


maybe you are one of those people who can figure out what 100x100 pixels or 29kb means, so much for tact.

They look sick I agree, you won't catch me with them tho. Very uncomfortable and not as much control over the bike as say if you ran with drag bars. Just my .02

thank you either way, I want more handlebar. Drag bars are nice, i just dont want to lean over my tank id like to sit back and enjoy the wind.



I just have a hard time riding this japanese bike and shifting above at 3,000 rpm for best performance while staying the mind set of riding a cruiser.

'cause you CRUISE especially when you hit 3k in third gear you can feel the bike accelerate, its a fun feeling, like nothin' can catch you. But its taking me work to relax on it.

Curious.... Have you ever ran with 12"+ apes before? If not then I suggest that you keep your stock Elk Horns close at hand just in case you arent a fan of the way she will ride after installing them. Either way apes do give most bikes a kickass look, some love em others hate em. I like them just don't like em enough to give up the handling. Wish ya da best.


Peace


P.S. don't mind KM....He likes to stur up chit...LMAO


EDIT: I just seen your pic after you edited your last post, yeah you need diff. bars I agree, they have drag bars on risers, at least a 6" to 9" rise I would recommend and a minumum of a 27" spread with a 4" pull back. Click the link at the bottom of my signature to view the bars on my 750. 9" rise and as much pull back as one would want due to it being a box end set.
