Do any of those RS's have their original bars?

Most, I'd say. Mine does.

All us Boxerworks guys from South East oz are still hanging out, how 'bout that.
Must be about nine years since we first got together at my place for the first simultaneous Oz/US Boxerworks rally.

Yep, most, if not all.
Few of the screens are at the original height though.

Damn! You Ozzies are tough! All we hear about in the U.S. is "which bar is best for the RS, that still fits?" :lol:

The RS weighs 500 lbs., the flat bars are 22" wide, and Jeff rides his like a motocross bike! :shock:
I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.

I try to not lever the wheel either way with the bars. Balanced bike, satisfactory surface contours, easy enough steering.
GS bars feel ridiculous when I hold them. :mrgreen:
