I just picked up a used 2006 Dyna. I haven't ridden in many years. It has 14 inch ape hangers. I love it. I have never owned a bike with ape hangers or ridden one with them. I had to pull mine back a few inches to make them comfortable for me. The former owner must have been taller with longer arms. I felt like I was leaning forward to reach them. I think it is all personal preference. I love the look and riding with my hands at shoulder level is really comfortable. Look for Hill Country Custom Cycles on YouTube. They are a custom shop in Texas that installs ape hangers. They do a weekly video. One of their guys mentions buying a new bike and riding it 30 miles to the shop and his back was killing him. He installed ape hangers and his back never bothered him again. He does a good job explaining bar height, riding with your back straight and being comfortable. https://www.youtube.com/c/HillCountryCustomCycles
