I'm 6' 9 " tall and trying to tweak my Roadstar 1600 to fit me a bit better. I have forward controls but a stock Silverado seat. Does anyone know of a seat that would set me back a couple of inches yet still be comfortable on long rides and or maybe some bars that would give me a bit more separation and extension with my arms? Thanks!

You might want to think about some baby apes. They may not give you more length but you'll have more of an upright posture. Saw a set on a Road Star in Sturgis and thought it looked pretty sweet

6' 9", geesh! You got a whole foot on me pal. If the RoadStar is small for you,I can imagine if you sat on a Fatboy it would look like a kids bike. I second the baby or mini apes or even drag bars.

Hey man,

What forward controls did you find?

I'm 6'4" and don't typically feel short but I do now. lol
I'm going with 12" or 14" apes on mine and a crash bar with highway pegs so I can stretch my legs out.
It's the reason I bought my roadstar. Hopefully it works.
