So I found an amazing deal on craigslist for a set of 20" ape hangers. I called the seller and had them in my posession later that day. I really like the look of tall apes but have never actually ridden with them. I was so excited about my aquisistion that I showed my brother and a few of my cruising buddies. The responses from them were pretty unanimious. Things like "Awesome, but I wouldn't do it." and "Don't get rid of your old bars just yet." and my favorite, "You're going to hate em." Yeah they are a real positive bunch of guys..NOT! As far as I know I don't think any of them have ridden with apes either. Anyways, I test fit them in the clamps (no wiring or cables yet) and sat on my bike just to see how they feel. I think they are 10x more comfortable than the stock bars. I used to slouch down with the old bars now I sit more erect and it takes alot of pressure off my lower back. With that said, the little voice in my head keep repeating my friends advice/negativity and I am considering just selling the bars (for a nice little profit) instead of using them. My question is, Is it really that big of a difference to ride with apes? I have no windshield so I'm already used to the sailboat effect. I figure some low speed maneuvers may take a little bit to get the hang of but I expect the cruising speed maneuvers to be the same or MORE comfortable. Am I correct to assume this? Any advice from those of you who have ape experience would be greatly appreciated.
