I saw so many rides with ape hangers out west, they actually became "normal" out there. Am them legal here?

I do not have a dyna, its a road king, old bike was a soft tail

harleys are only for homos if their name is curt.

I think bars that are about 10" rise are legal, over that you're flying over the radar!

X2 - can you reach them bars Hack?

Apes = stacks = ricer wings.

I've been "half looking" at HDs and can't find an unmolested (i.e. no drag pipes or forward controls where they don't belong) example out there - let alone they're apparently all made of solid gold & platinum, despite the local economy.

randomely on another note, I watched "Easy Rider" the other night. I have never been into old bikes, but that bike that Peter Fonda is on is badass.

Softail just had a set of wide glide factory bars on it.. nothin special.. theese are 16" rise.

Wide glide bars are 8" I think, but the neck is also higher on the softail than the RK.
