Monkey Bagger Bars

Staff Report ­ Photos by Rachel Adam Paul Yaffe's Bagger Nation generously donated products to the silent auction portion of our charity ride. Included in the winning bid was a free installation and this tech story. Personalizing your Bagger can become very involved with all the bolt-on accessories available to the modern Harley-Davidson® enthusiast. Replacing the handlebars on a motorcycle to suit one's riding style is a labor intensive procedure, especially when replacing them with larger-than-stock bars. The cables required for the new handlebars are longer than stock, and the electrical wires must be extended for the added handlebar height. It's well worth the effort however, if the end result is a comfortable riding position. Follow along as we install Monkey Bagger Bars from Paul Yaffe's Bagger Nation.
