Finally got the damn things, still waiting on grips'

Fitted, much narrower and several inches forward of the standard bars, much more natural position (for me anyway).

Looks great, thats sort of the shape and position the bars on the M800 have. I find the M very comfortable, and I think that looks very comfortable too. Are you quite a tall rider?

No, not tall about 5' 10" in the old money.

Prefer to be leaning foward than sitting bolt upright.

That's a nice clean look, the grips will finish that off a treat I think.

Managed to get out yesterday between the storms.

Bike rides very differently, much more aggressive feeling and the steering is much sharper. Definitely gone from a bike you sit on and steer to a bike you ride.

Got out today for my first real ride since fitting the bars.

What a tranformation, 250klms mix of country sweeping roads and main roads through the hills outside Melbourne. In a nutshell, it's a different bike, ride position, handling and comfort are all totally different.

The risers and bar even seem to break up the airflow so I don't think the screen will be going back on.

AHAAAA !!! Another man of the bendy spine variety ! I've had the exact same experience putting lower and more forward bars on my wifes little S40 / Savage , new machine entirely. So no I've got so excited I've gone out and bought some 1" x 1.8mm stainless tube , to make my own bars. Want that flat-top look, innit great ?! Did you also notice how much less bumpy the roads are when you have a bit of a crouch ? So us southern hemisphere guys Know Stuff : ) , with you on this hymn sheet , definitely !
