Thanks Les, I am struggling with the upright bars because I have been riding clip ons for the last 15 years. I keep making slight changes to the controls and bars to find the best position. The high bars and upright riding position is better than clip ons when my girl is riding with me.

Another beautiful motorcycle in the Swan stable, inspirational.

I always thought the stock triumph bars with the kicked up ends looked a little weird, like you I end up with the brake and clutch at different angles , I tend to sit more upright when braking, maybe that accounts for it.

Swan, haven't checked in here in quite some time. I agree, your bike is really fantastic! I'm sure jawbones drop and eyeballs pop where ever you take it.
