new member new bike old biker!

Hi, I just picked up my 2012 1300 V Star Tourer yesterday, she is unique as she is painted the 2013 RED not grey! beautiful!, been riding for 17 years, my husband and I put 8-12,000 miles on our bikes a year, starting a cross country trip in August.
Need help figuring out risers or different handlebars on this bike before we go, I am vertically challenged!
thanks for any help you can give me.
past bikes: 1978 Honda Shadow 700
2000 VStar 1100 Classic
2005 Honda VTX 1300 Retro

A lot of people put on handle bars from a Roadstar I think. I guess it puts the controls back a bit further.

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. I've heard a lot of good comments from people who have gone to the Road Star bars. Hope you find what you need and have a great safe trip. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!
