                  I'm of the belief that more than a few bike crashes occur due to the legs being stretched out to far, allowing the knees to lock. And any army guy knows what happens if you lock your knees !!!
                  You pass out....So I placed them so my legs stay slightly bent. The feel is great ! and the pitch and angle of the ends turned out nice....The overall width is roughly 35 inches, and paired with the 32 inch drag bars, worked out well.

                  I was worried about the right leg clearing the ham can with my knee, but no worries, its all good..

                  And I cant tell you who that ugly fuggar in the picture is , but he has a nice bike...LOL !!

                          Not sure about something on #3 but that bike skews your picture making you look like a little giant.

                            Boss, I can take a sporty and put it in my back pocket if I want to...It's like i said, even a "big" bike looks small when I sit on it....Measure a 6'3" mark on your wall, and picture a 205 pound person in that space at about 3 feet wide....Thats me.....I'm tall !!
