    Am I the only who likes my hands behind the fairing while riding in cold weather?

    Yeah that’s just you. Some of us taller riders want to be comfortable when we ride and having hands down by our knees ain’t comfortable.

    For a lot of us; the apes are more comfy. For those who ride in cold weather where gloves are not enough; there are some wind blockers for the hands available. The Brukus name brand comes to mind.

    An interesting idea to be able to lower the bars for bad weather with the use of one tool might be collapsible bars similar to an old time antenna or maybe like on a bicycle seat, a tooless cam lock.

    Since in 30 + years of riding I’ve never had a bike with a fairing I wouldn’t know but having several bikes with apes, presently a set of 16″ Chubbies on my fatboy and 14″ on my Dyna, I do know about what makes me comfortable.

    That’s cool JD !!!
    You’ve got to do what comfy for you to ride
    & we all understand the benefits
    of sitting straight up & down vs. all bent over.
    Depending on your height some folks would be more comfy with higher apes
    I would not & keeping it in the 12 to 14 inch range is just fine for me
    To each their own !!!!
