Re: 09 handle bars and controls
No, I don't have to admit that at all. I think they look fine and are made with quality components, the layout is ergonomically sound, they are easy to use, and they are packaged it in such a way that you get a lot of usable functions in a very small footprint of space without looking cluttered and crowded. Overall I'd say they did a nice job with it. The fact that it's new and you and others don't like change is irrelavent to the argument. Honestly, I always found the BMW controls to be less intuitive than the ones that were on the last HD I owned years ago (93 Ultra), but I adapted to them 13 years ago and have been just fine ever since.
If I purchased my bikes based on what the controls looked like I would still be riding HD with chrome controls and flames on the grips. There are so many more important things to consider about a bike, like riding it!
