    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

        I don't think there is any cons in RD handlebar. It is very comfortable and will be a good fit for your TB.

        Could you please specify what probs you are facing in the stock handlebar?

          thanks Aditya, i have broad shoulders and somehow the stock handlebar feels little small in width, i feel comfortable when i place my grip towards the end of the bar. also the elbows are too relaxed.
          i owned a machismo earlier and had rd350 handlebar and felt extremely comfortable. was wondering if it would feel the same on a TB.

            Check out a Lightning 535 handle bar, it extends a little outside than the TB stock Handle bar

              RD handlebar suits best for the city riding with Thunderbird, It is not so comfortable for highway runs. I once had the RD handlebar and replaced it after a 200km ride as i was not comfortable in highways.

                thanks ramesh and lonelyrider.
                i tried the elctra handlebar, didn't like it.
                will give a go to the 535 lightening handlebar, if i can get one in ahmednagar..
                will be driving down to indore in oct'12, hopefully should get one before that.
                thanks guys
