  It's unfortunate that Ricardo Kuhn has stopped making his risers that 
  adapt Pro-Taper bars to Oilheads. I have these bars on my GS, and 
  they were a fantastic upgrade from stock.


  I hear that the R12GS bars are better than before, but still leave 
  your wrists at awkward angles. Other vendors may pick up this market, 
  we'll see.
