Anyone have this problem?
I have l5/s1 gone, l4/l5 herniated, l2/l3 herniated, all other degenerated and I have spinal arthritis.
Degenerative disc disease too, ... so I got that going for me, lol.
I am in constant pain, have been for 4 or 5 years.
Any bars I have to hold my arms up for cause me to go numb or end up sending shooting pains down my arms and back after a while from fatigue.
I find beach bars with 3 or 4" rise and good pull back do the trick.
Plus next to apes, there my favorite look on a Road King.
I dont have a Glide so I cant say, but that pic with the fairing and the bus bars I think looks awesome!!
You can see how my arms rest on the bars in this pic and how the bike looks with the low profile, this is my last bike I just sold it a month or two ago.

I can do things sitting down though, including riding.
I had to give up nearly everything I do, mt biking, volleyball, baseball, basketball, deep sea fishing, surf casting, hiking,etc.. I am not giving up riding, matter of fact I am building a nutty touring bike so I can tour some extreme rides on an extreme machine.
Need to move the footboards forward 3 or 4", get a seat that puts me back and up as opposed to down, I am 6'3" so I dont need to go ay lower, and then to cap it off and complete the perfect riding position for my back is the beach or bus bars , generally 3" rise 36" wide, 14" pullback
Your welcome man, good luck with your searching, I know how frustrating it can be.
ps wasnt that a glide in the pics with the cafe style bar?
You mainly dont want to be leaning or stretching if you can avoid it.
