trying to lean forward with these huge handlebars means at some point you have to adopt the Ben spies "elbowz" style.

so much easier and natural with clipons. if only there were an easy way of switching between clipons and handlebars.. :)
Funny you should mention that the same crossed my mind when I saw my track pics. Possible solutions to get the body position into a more racy position are: A)clip ons, too low for me & tank clearance issues. or B) Drag bars which I fitted yesterday. MUCH BETTER, still OK for road use, no clearance problems cables all still OK but I had to remove the flyscreen (or cut it) They are also shorter so it gets your elbows in & they look great with Triumph bar end mirrors.

Which bars did you use ??

All of the fat aluminum drag bars I can find are much wider with not enough thinner area to cut them to OEM width so I am very interested in which you used.

These are not "fat bars", I got them from a local bike shop, (no name brand) they are 70cm long absolutly flat with a 5 cm pull back. Any shorter & then the cables would bunch up & the clutch adjustment knob would catch on the fork top. I then bought some ally bars ends & machined them down to 22mm & bolted the mirrors on. Thinking of getting the bars powder coated though, I don't like chrome. Sorry I can't be of more help.

As what others have said, you're crossed up.
Try doing the "kiss the mirror" thing - it will help immensely.

When moving your body over into "lean" position, try getting your head into a position where you could theoretically kiss your mirror. This will also help get your body down lower....
