I love my new (to me) '03 954 rr.
I have one pretty big problem with it though. I am a diminutive 5' 7" tall. I can sit on the bike all right, the balls of my feet are on the ground, which was little different from my old Nighthawk. The bars are another story.
I am quite stretched out on the bike, and cannot realistically support myself using legs and back muscles. I certainly don't mind getting a little sore while riding like a madman (or mad scientist, a bit closer to the truth). However, my throttle hand falls asleep after 10-20 minutes, which would seem to be quite dangerous. Fortunately I'm left handed, so this doesnt' affect my love life. :thumb:
I would like to ameliorate this perilous situation through the addition of bar risers, to make my position a bit more comparable to all you tall, handsome, and no doubt well-endowed gentlemen.
Through net searches I have found Convertibars and Helibars, both of which are advertised to fit on the 954. I have two questions for the collective wisdom of the forum (except for that guy from Ann Arbor)
1. Are there other alternatives I should consider besides these two?
2. Between these two, which do you guys (and babes) recommend?
Mondo thanks in advance.
