Say... That gives me a great idea for a CBR Cruiser!

I put thruxton bars on my t100 using the thruxton handle bar risers. I have just over 10000 miles total riding time and I had no issues with control or comfort. I'm 5'9" with the stock mid controls. Hope this gave you a bit of confidence.

Well...as soon as the pipes get back from being ceramic coated (black) I'm putting on the Thruxton bars (powder coated black), black Pazzo levers, and Norman Hyde rear sets.

What the hell, right?

Can't wait to see how it turns out. Good luck

I'm not saying your buddy"s admonition is likely true, but I will say this: If it causes you to seriously respect the change in your bike's geometry and handling he's done you a service.

@BalancePoint - I couldn't agree more. Changing the bike up early in the year will provide me with several months of adjusting, before heading to the Cambria mash up in August.
