Tall Guy DIY Highway Bars

Title says it all. Finally took some detailed pictures of my highway bars 'cause I've seen so much talk of engine guards and highway bars lately.

Hope this helps somebody who's an on-the-cheap quick-n-dirty (but structurally sound) DIY'er who doesn't have time to browse eBay for months while they ride wishing they had highway bars.

AT MINIMUM you need a drill with a stepped bit, an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel and the patience to deal with your own apprentice marks and first-timer mistakes. Torque everything down DAMN TIGHT or else you'll be dealing with metal bars and rods under your tires at speed.
