I dug the apes, but you gotta go with your gut. Maybe the apes visually pulled the eyes away from the meat of the bike too much. I think you made a great choice with these lower bars.
Don't get me wrong, I liked the apes. It's also nice to know that if I ever sell my Spitfire I can swap them out and have two different feeling bikes. There was just something about these that clicked for me, and like Frank said, I gotta do it my way.Not a bad choice,not my favorite. But I agree with KingFish,go with your gut. It is your ride after all.
