    Ive wanted to put pullback bars on my bike to help give me a more relaxed riding position, so after alot of research I decided to order the Victory XC mitered chubby bars to accomplish pullback and have a more custom look. I also decided on the Ness Rad III mirrors to make it pop.

    I was concerned that the custom mirrors wouldnt be as functional, but to my surprise, I can actually see better from these than the plastic stock mirrors.

    The bars have a great finish and make the bike easier to manuever at slow speeds and give me the arm bend I was looking for.

    I scheduled the install for Friday morning when the Victory demo tour was at Bairs Victory in North Canton. It was alot of fun riding their bikes while I waited![​IMG]

    Those look so much better than the stock bars! I really like them...can't wait to get my new bars on. Ness mirrors are bigger than I thought they would be which is a good thing. I had similar style mirrors on my old bike and changed them out cause they were pretty much good for nothing due to the small size. But I like those.

    Nice bars! How do they fit ya?

    Did the ones you get end up being the same as the onesVPM puts on the police bikes?

    Much more relaxed position. It also helps me with slow speed maneuvers. VPM told me that the bars are " made for them" but I think they look like the same ones. My dealer charged $300 for them so it was just easier to order through them, plus I wanted to support my local dealer with the part sale because they are more than fair on labor rates. I'm really happy with them.

    Yeah, VPM uses them becauseof their performance in slow-speed maneuvers...but the added benefit is that they areperfect for long hauls, too. Enjoy!

    I like the look of those and have been on a major research mission to address the crappy grip position Vic thinks we all love so much. I ended up going with the HeliBars. They should be here next week and on the bike the following Friday. HeliSpendy....but I need to get the grip more swept back to abouta 40 degree angle rather the the stock 25 degrees. Plus with a max +4 pullback,I should never, ever have to lean foward again to reach the bars. Wanted to make sure I can adust them twenty different ways to get them exactly where I like them.

    Checked out Helibars website and it looks like they are the same bars for the CR and the CC. Aren't the CC bars longer?

    RV_Mark, any chance you can post a picture of your stock CR bars in comparison with these? Say lying on top of these?

    I put a set of Cross Country bars on my CR, which got me the pullback I wanted ... but the wrist angle is just not comfortable for me on long trips. And I don't have the low-speed leverage I would wish for, either.
