Pics of my two Harley helmets and what a Wide Glide with 16-inch apes looks like on a 6'3" rider. And a vanity shot my daughter took when I wasn't looking.

Doesn't look comfortable to me, but if you like it and like the way it rides and handles, that is all that is important.

I test rode a Road King Special with Harley apes on it and I did not like it at all. Now you need to find a jacket with underarm vents so you can get some air flow when it is hot.

I haven't decided if I could do a 500 mile BBQ run on it yet, but I will try eventually. Rides and handles great. I can carve a corner surprisingly well with it. I could ride around town and joy ride on it all day long. It's droning down the highway that tests your stamina. I find stretching out on the forward control pegs, leaning back, and stretching out on the bars I can go a long while. Anyway, I like it and it's running good now. I added some mid pegs to give me alternate foot positions. I can stand up on them too. It's a cool ride to have in the stable.

I always goof on hand position during pictures because I'm reaching over the grip and holding the front brake.

I drained out the old fork oil, which appeared to be transmission fluid (at the correct level) and replaced it with my Torco 10w. I can tell a difference in less clunking.

I would have given you a like, but it looks like the like feature isn't working for me. I can't even see likes others have given me.

I sent a message a month or so back to the admins about this issue. Guess it's not an issue to them ;)
