Default Bar suggestions ??

Im new to the cruiser world, recently purchased 2005 Midnight Warrior completely stock. I want to change the handle bars , the stock set up for the bars is very comforable for me but I want some black bars that look better. Any suggestion for bars with similar pullback and rise??

My first impulse: My suggestion for a good bar is Handies in South Beach.

Okay okay, I'll be here all week.

Seriously, there is a Handlebar Picture thread around here someplace, plus the Popular Mods thread in the Technical Forum has a bunch of great info in the Handlebar section. That should get you started and once we know what you like the suggestions will flow like maple from a maple. Okay probably faster than that.

Thanks arizonawarrior for pointing me in the right direction. I found some bars (handlebars) that I like.

I like the Punishers...CP-1120. Gives you more pullback and lets you sit more upright. Very comfy. Depends what you are looking for. The drag bars are more bad ass looking.

Wadave,

Do you have a stock seat with those punisher bars?

Did you need extended cables to make those bars work? I am looking for exactly what you described... Something that allows you to sit a bit more upright for comfort on longer rides. I currently have a corbin two up seat for touring, but the stock bars still make me bend over to reach and gets sore fairly quickly.

hey, I was thinking after reading the heading , hey what about one of those bars that have really wild girls with very loose fitting clothes that fall off all the time. then I remembered this was a motorcycle forum and figure he was asking about handle bars for a motorcycle, with a really wild girl, with loose fitting clothes, that fall off easy, hanging on to the handle bars of a motorcycle. right ? or am I on the wrong thread here ,lol btk572

I keep rattling on about the baron radius, best thing ever, these are the bars that Yamaha should have fitted as standard equipment!............. Awesome!
