I just picked up some Harley Drag Bars on clearance. Not sure if that's the direction I want to go with. Hoping to see some visual ideas from fellow Roadsters.

How do you feel driving it with the mid controls? Planning on rear sets or does it feel good?

The positioning does not seem to feel that much different. I rode for an hour yesterdayand didn't notice anymore soreness then usual.
I would love rear sets but want to keep the 2-up capability. But I through my feet back on passenger pegs on highway.

I just got my Todd's speed down bars modded and installed this weekend. I love them! Had to widen the center section to fit the forks. They replaced the cheapie drags that I had on. I'm really liking the control with these bars. I'm still waiting for my rear sets. The mids have me cramped up a bit! I'm hoping this week!!!

I installed the TC brothers tracker bar, with Biltwell grips. For $58, I found it hard to pass up. I'm not sure if I'll keep them but they definitely make the bike more comfortable.

I tried those bars first. I figured that for the price why not. I realized it was going the wrong way for me... I did have a bit of a problem with them though. When the dimple was put in it oblonged the tube and I had to rework it to have the throttle work smoothly. Did you experience that?
