Default Help: HMD Gorilla or Ness Modulars?

Momma got a new car on Saturday...SO-I'm getting new bars, but I cannot decide between the Ness modular and the HMD gorilla bagger bars, help me decide. Pro's and con's of each would be good and of course opinions on the look of the two.

Without being able to 'test' them both, I'd be more inclined to go with the Modulars solely for the adjustability. To me, looks are 2nd priority when it comes to comfort.

Have you considered the Victory apes? I like mine.

Bars will be my next major purchase/project for my XC. I've pretty much decided on a the Ness Modulars in black. Too me they not only fit the style of my XC but I wouldn't want a set of apes without ajustability

I'm not ready yet but there's a set for sale in the classifieds...at a great deal

I really think I am leaning towards the Ness Modulars because of the adjust-ability.

The Ness are sweet! I have the Vicbaggers Tarzan bars, very similar to HMD except less expensive. The boys at Vicbaggers are way better to deal with than HMD in my opinion. My only complaint is I don't like the angle they lean back towards me. I like my bars to be more in a true vertical position. Right now they are on the same angle as the forks and I can't rotate them ahead any further. In my eyes they look funny... ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1459956619.370526.jpg
