Probably the best modification Ive ever made. I have a 96 Shadow 1100 and I've never liked the feel of the handle bars. They were too close together and I just always felt cramped. The stock ones were 28.5 inches from tip to tip with the grips on. The ones I put on are 32.5 and man, in this case, does size definately matter. That 4 inches makes all the difference in the world. My bike handles soooooooo much better and it feels so much better to be able to stretch my arms out there. Now it really feels like I'm crusin on a cruiser. Another good thing is a friend had them laying in his garage and let me have them for $15. What a deal and what a difference.
