\r\n Y\'all see what\'s wrong with this picture?
\r\n
\r\n
\r\nHere, I\'ll zoom in a bit...
\r\n
\r\n
\r\nSoooo....that was just a bit of a surprise...there was this hard stop, ya see...and the bars dropped...kind of hard to steer when the bars are beside your tank...
\r\n
\r\nThe bottom half of that riser is gone too...there\'s a stress mark in the chrome...had it broken that would have done me in I expect...
\r\n
\r\nPretty sure they are Custom Chrome risers. Been a while since I bought \'em. Should have noted before buying that they weren\'t beefy enough at the point where they broke. Most every other model is stronger there.
\r\n
\r\nThey are the first ones shown in this article:
\r\nhttp://www.timskelton.com/valkyrie/how_to/risers.htm
\r\n
\r\nI wouldn\'t use \'em (again). If you have them, I\'d change to something else. I ride, and ride hard...but there is no reason other than faulty design for them to have broken.
\r\n
\r\nSigh. Parts are on order. You hear that Hal? Get \'em to me quick! I\'ve already got the shakes!
\r\n
\r\nMust. Ride. (bounces up and down looking for the UPS guy)
\r\n
\r\nI suppose I’ll have to take the cage in to work tomorrow.
\r\n
\r\nI wonder where I’ve left the keys to that thing…
\r\n
\r\nI wonder if it’ll start.\r\n

    \r\n Wow...I\'d probably try and figure out where they are from and let the manufacturer know about it...not that you are asking for anything, but just to let them know they may have a problem. Maybe they\'ll care and maybe not.\r\n
