Handlebar

I have low rise handlebars on my 2010 Bonneville...I really like them, but think I might be more comfortable if I can sit a little closer to the handlebars...is there a compromise? A way to bring them back a bit, or low rise bars that extend back.

Mine are black and 7/8".

Thanks.

Pivoting riser

I've just discovered pivoting risers! Anyone use these? Of course using them might require all new cables, which is another can of worms I'd rather not deal with.

Gen Mar Risers

These moved my 1" Thruxton bars up and a bit back. The bars are now much more comfortable and the amount of control is the best of five bar setups I tried. Also available in 7/8". At New Bonneville.

Pivoting

Wonderful! Am anxious to hear how you make out.

Also read good things about the Gn Mar risers.

I installed the ROX adjustable risers on my M bars. No alterations to cables necessary. Plug-and-play. They put the bars just where I wanted them.
