Default New tall sissy bar

Here's my nightster with the new tall sissy bar offered by harley. I dig it, its detachable too. What do you guys think? I am aware of the ridiculousness that is my hand grips. They don't go with anything on my bike and I love them.

I like it - I am not normally a fan of those kind of pullback risers & bars, but I like how it looks on that bike.

The sissy bar looks nice too - gave me ideas for mine, and that mount cross-bar offers options to mount other things to it, like a dagger or other emblem.


It's got a bit of the "1970's outlaw" look to it
