Default Drag bars on an XR?

Anyone have or come across an XR that has drag bars? I haven't seen any available and it's not likely a common choice. But wanted to see if anyone did before having a set made for mine.

You must be able to tie your shoes without bending over.

No problem. I have knuckle draggers for arms.

Holy Toledo......the X bikes seating is so far back compared to other bikes. I would have to lay on the tank if I installed Drag bars!

How about a set of HMD Wicked bars. They were way too short for me, like about 4-6 inches shorter than the XC bars I had on my Cross Roads.

JP Cycle has all kinds of drag bars. Be Careful the ones with knurling more than likely will not ling up with your risers. Yes they have risers too.

If I go HMD, I'll be trying out their Speed Bars. They're essentially drag bars, but they're for the XC so the lower part isn't that clean looking IMO since it's obscured.

I'll check them out. I actually want to avoid risers.
