Default Need handle bar advice

I have the ness fly bars on now. I'm wanting something more forward. I'm 6'3" so I've got some long arms. I'd like to do t-bar style, drag bars something. More height than what I have would be nice. Don't want to be uncomfortable on long runs. I like the direct bolt on the risers, not clamp style. Thanks all

I have Cruiser Performance 1.25 drag T bars, they where a 5 inch rise but I chopped them down to a 3 inch rise in black. I bought them from Phat Performance...

how about the miniapes? you can rotate them as forward as you like, and you will definitely have more height.

I can tell you there not as comfortable as the stock bars, depending on your height they may be a reach. I personally love them, and they give me the aggressive look I was going for. I get a lot of compliments on them. Between the "true" drag bars and the 2"forward 1" up, foot extensions I fab'd up it gives me the stretched out look that the Hammer in my eyes should have. I did chop the risers from 5 inches down to 3 inches to add to the Drag look I was going for, these bars are on ebay now for $60 less than what I paid for them....

I forgot to mention the internal wiring really cleans up the bike as well, also coming off an extremely aggressive sport bike, these bars are far more comfortable than what I was riding.
