I was at my dealer last fall and he had a Darkhorse Chieftain on the floor with mid rise bars on. I sat it and loved them. I had set installed on my 2014 Chieftain this past spring for Daytona. I believe you can tilt them back a bit. I am 6-2 tall and they fit me perfect with no adjustment since installation.  8) 8)

My comments are worth $1000?  Sure thing, I'll take a look at those bars this weekend and get back to you.

I love mine ! Much more comfortable then the new stock bars" I say new because  14s had different bars that I liked" I absolutely hated them. I don't remember paying $1000 for them for my 16 chieftain, but I can't remember last week lol.

Iím planning on having the dealer do it for a variety of reasons.  My question is is it worth it ?   More comfortable?
