Easy...

Ok look...I'm tryin to be easy on you about the pictures but come on....that handle you've got, your giving us too much ammo here.

Yea thats about the setup I have which I like a lot, good beefy adapters, wide enough bar for good control and easy highway too.

Right On Jackass (damn feels weird saying that).

Those appear to just be Rox risers with whatever flavor of 1 1/8" bars. I suggest you investigate the "edit" function rather than creating a new post for every failed pic experiment.

Yep, no worries with the cables. In reality the bars aren't in that much of a different spot than stock. The Rox risers allow you to put different bar bends on. I wanted the 3 1/2 " risers so I could rotate things rearward so it was comfortable sitting, as I nearly always have a pillion.

Rox Risers

I was really jazzed when I came across the Rox risers for the first time a few weeks ago on a brief expedition to Orange Krush and on paper they would seem to solve many problems (universal fit on triple clamps, height, inclination, fat bars).

I would assume most will go for longer risers and flatter bars than the stock GS, so on balance not so much overall height increase for the cables.

@ 6'4, I got 5" risers and high bend pro taper bars - to have a more rally stance, so am ready for a cable conversion... a small price to pay for comfortable standing ergonomics

I'm running a 75mm rise on std bars.
The clutch cable is just long enough.
Routing is important,

I had 50mm rise and standard bar tilted right up for max height and the cables are fine but with little play left, so would agree that your setup is about max
