G-Striker Clip-On Handlebars
« on: October 19, 2019, 06:22:55 AM »
Anyone got a set of these G-Striker handlebars?



Any pictures? Do you think they'll fit with the Cafe model? I'm feeling like a human parachute whenever I'm over 90 and hoping to improve the freeway mileage by a few mph.
If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.

Are you wearing textile jackets!  Iíve noticed that wearing textile vs leather gives me the same feeling no matter which bike Iím on.  The weave of the textile goes against a smooth air flow at any speed but is certainly more annoying at speed.  Thereís really (really) a difference at triple digit speeds.

Thanks for the response. I ordinarily wear an Aerostich on the freeway, (though I still don't expect texting drivers to see it or my bright green Cafe), but I feel like a parachute when wearing my tight leather jacket and jeans.



It's not just the aerodynamics; I also prefer not to have all of my weight on my ass, and I like to ride with my core engaged and spine elongated. I've been riding my 02 ZX9R for the last 18 years and you could say it has shaped my anatomy as well as my views. I've also got a taller Zero Gravity Sport-touring windscreen on order (for our dog primarily, but it should help with the aerodynamics as well.)



This thread is about the lower bars. Has anyone tried a set of these bars, or other lower bars?

Cool.
I've never seen a dog on a sport bike. Or on the tank

Okay, has anyone tried any other lower clip-on handlebars? I'm not fussy; just want to get further down and forward.
