Original setup was some tall like 6 inch or taller risers with pull back drag bars.
I like wider bars since I am a big guy/
I coulda put the 24 incher pull back drag bars I have on the shelf.

Out of laziness and a tight schedule. I went with what you see on there now instead. They are wider with just stock risers.

Rocko, if you like 'em that's fine but if you've never had em before, those grips suck. Get a little oil on your hands from a roadside adjustment and the damn things are slipperier than tricky Dick. Plus they look padded and comfy but after about five minutes, they feel like a whore's heart in a snowstorm.

I'd be switchin'

I like em. It works well in 120F heat. I've had those pretty chrome rubber grips melt like butter out here.

Edit. If hands get slippery. I got sand everywhere,

Yeah. I'll start another thread for that trip. In the meantime. I just splurged for my new outfit for N.C. Hopefully. It will be here before Colorado and Lil Brother.



35 buck t-shirt . But I deserve a little love from myself.

Edit: I read threads and posts where guys pay 20 bucks for 2 screws and a o-ring. So I don't feel too raped.
2nd Edt: I guess this brings the build costs up to grand now.
