Interested in thoughts on handling with changing from the standard handlebars to the street slammer bar or the fat min-ape. I have short arms so wonder if either makes turning easier or if there are other benefits or drawbacks from each. Thanks.

A couple of my friends run apes and when I rode there sleds
I realized the higher the bars the more you have to man handle the sled and the higher you go I found the more vibration.
and you will save on deoderant to.lol
I like lower bars drags with risers with a slight pull back.

Thanks for your responses. This last weekend I had the Road King touring handlebar [#56557-95] installed. Tremendous difference in handling compared to the stock handlebars for my 5'8" height. Much easier for turning and comfort on the road.
