    I installed the short reach bars on our RTL and like them now that I have used them
    for a little while, it did take some getting use to the new position but not bad at all now.

    That's awesome. I am 5'11" as well. I like the position with the short reach. I did the risers on the Goldwing and that was a huge increase in comfort as well.

    This is the first time I can really see what to expect - thank you for providing an objective and useful comparison. Can you give me an idea of where the standard bars fall on a 2014-2019 in comparison (bonus points if you can sit on one and take a comparable photo)? Thank you!!

    This is the best visual comparison I've seen on the short reach bars, I have mine on order. Thanks stebrock.

    Default More or less comfortable now?

    Where did you purchase your Short Reach Handlebars, and if you don't mind, what did they cost?
    Hopefully, these will stop the pain between my shoulder blades after a long ride?

    The short reach bars will only work on the 2020 RTs. Not the 2019s and earlier.

    Can you please tell me where you bought your Short Reach Bars and if you don't mind, what you paid?

    Dimensions are in the copy of the Facebook post picture.
    It's been rainy since I put them on. Road today around town. The real test will be on a longer ride.
    The bars are pushed forward/up as far as they'll go so yes you can lower them.
    They're a lot cheaper than the HeliBars ($599) which will be my next choice if these don't work out.

    Thanks for your input. Please let me know how the new bars workout once you've had a chance to take a long ride.
    Thanks,

    Compared to the stock set up. How much closer do they come to you? Tom
