    Just took my first long ride with the new Heritage Style Bars on my 09 Road King Classic. Wow...what a difference. I am only 5 ft 9 and cannot believe how much better the bike feels with them. It is perfect. I can now lean back on my backrest...relax and cruise...fantastic. Well worth the 80 bucks I paid for them. If you are thinking about it, do it. Do it yourself...not hard at all and I NEVER worked on a bike before. I cannot say enough how much I am loving my bike now. I was actually dissappointed in the Road King until now..wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bought my 04 UC with beach bars on it. I loved the look and they let me sit back in the seat (5'7") but my wrists get very tired when the cruise is not on. It's like riding a wheel barrow down the road. Is there someplace to read more about the Heritage bars? I guess I'll search and not be such a newb.

    Hey, a mod for under a "Hunerd Dallah" is not a bad deal for a comfort and safety mod. :D
