I like the Cobra products for the price and the looks ... of course I say this and dont actually have any because I don't have the funds right now!

National Cycle paladin bars. They look a little more streamlined, and I can attest to their ability to protect the bike and you in a crash.

When I wrecked and needed new highway bars, I bought the same exact thing.

Good luck.

I have the MC Enterprises and they have been good for me. They are a little lower priced than some of the others.

I have the national cycle paladin bars, i preferred those because they're not the traditional oval shape when you look at the front of your bike, they have a nice taper to them.

I've got the Cobra Fatty's and like them a lot. I've seen a lot of posts here about the Fatty's scraping the ground but i've never had that issue in over 13K miles. I've taken some of my turns pretty aggressively but my pegs always touch the ground first, which is when i let up on the throttle. I like the Cobra Fatty's mainly because in my opinion the size matches the look of the VTX.
