Has anybody LOWERED their handlebars

I have read about bar risers, but I am wondering if anybody has lowered their bars. I assume this would require different bars which is fine, but I find the stock bars to be high and a bit far away. I would like a bar that lowered my hands and put them further back, but without interfering with full steering range. Might require a somewhat staighter hand position as well? Any success stories or ideas?

I rotated mine back a notch. They are a little lower and closer than stock.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
