I'm in Ottawa, Ontario. Back in March my handlebars were checked by the cop with a measuring tape when I was pulled over. I forget exactly what the max legal measurement is but he had me hold the tape at crotch level and took a measurement. They were slightly over the "limit" but he let it slide. I went home and pulled my bars back a bit. My risers and bars have a total height of 15".
Quebec hates motorcycles unfortunatetly, laws are tougher there.
