    Want Shadow Aero Handlebars on my VTX1800

    New to this beast of a bike, or in my case trike, and being only 5' 4" I need to sit way upright to hold the bars and even lean forward to turn. My Shadows' handlebars fit me perfectly and much more comfortably. Any suggestions for swapping out or modifying the VTX 1800 handlebars so my short butt can reach them better? (I realize part of it is the longer bike body, but I love everything else about this trike.) Thanks!

    Maybe some pullback risers.

    Some aftermarket seats will move you forward and/or up as well. Post some pics when you get a chance.

    Pics of your ride would help. Pull back risers help a ton but might require replacing cables and hoses. Worth it for comfort.
    I found the factory bars to be perfect on my R with adding risers.

    Can’t seem to upload pics directly, so see if this link works to my album. And thanks again for any specific suggestions.
