Question handle bar question

Ok guys need your suggestions.

I like the look of the milwuakee super twin handle bars. I am confussed about what rise and pull back I would need that I could see the speedo?

If you have any other handle bar suggestions let me know. I would even consider 2".

I cant find anything on the search engine/ although doesnt help[ reception in the swamps of Florida!...lol

Thanks

I am thinking of getting these.
Cruiser Performance Hooker 1.25 Diameter x 7 inch Fatty Black Handlebars

I have the barons drag bars now. I am 5'7" and I cannot see the tach without leaning forward a bit. I have had them for years and it has not been a problem. I am thinking of going to the ones above 'cause they are kewl' but they will let me see the tach.

The Barons are 7"/7" on pullback/rise. I think these are about the same. There was a sitting calc somewhere on the web (have not been able to find it lately). Plug in some numbers and you could watch the guy's sitting position move on the motorcycle.

Anybody know where that link might be?

I can't see the top of the speedo with those bars. I love em but that's the trade off. If you were shorter (I'm 6'2") it might not be a problem.

I mean the Milwaukee super radius bars...

Sorry I missed your question. I can't see the top, only the bottom.

I thought CPs weren't being sold right now. Aren't they the same as sinful city bars, and phat performance pulled them from their inventory?
