Altrider crashbars - front/back views anybody?

Can any stromtrooper with Altrider crashbars installed please post photos of front (from front wheel looking back) and back views (from rider position looking forward)?

All the images I found (even by AltRider themselves) are side views which do not show how much the crashbars extend to the sides.

I'm going to get them probably, but want to get the whole 'picture' of how they looked installed.

TIA!

I'll take a couple of photos tomorrow and post them. They are great bars...they protect the plastic and you can remove the fairings w/o removing the bars.
Thanks Ed. Looking forward for that.

I'm also considering the color.
The FOF principle (Function Over Form) implies I should get the unpainted raw aluminum bars - no paint, nothing to get rusted and peeled, also cheaper by $10 (hey..we are stromtroopers...). My bike's wheels are silver too.

But on the other hand the bike is white and black chassis, so would look nice..
Silver will be chosen most probably.

Sorry about how long it took me to remember to grab a couple of pictures. Here they are. By the way, I like the silver, it's a non-painted stainless so if you drop it the scratch doesn't take off any paint that need to be touched-up.

Those are Happy-Trail highway pegs and boxes.

Awesome Ed! Thanks :thumbup:

They look so compact!
What about the legs? (I have long 34' inseam)
Do you think they might touch the bars, or they are no where near?

Also like your highway pegs.

I also have a 34" inseam. I use the tall touring seat along with the bead seat (mostly to give me an extra 1/2" of lift). I don't come anywhere near the bars. The highway pegs are great for a long trip to give me a chance to change position. Two farkles that I want to install are the peg lowering kit and to get a custom seat.

As someone who has had both knees replaced, comfort is high on my list.
