im kinda new to riding. ive only been a "legal" rider for a couple years and always had junk bikes. well, a few weeks ago i decided to get something a little nicer and bought this suzuki volusia. ive done a couple things to it. i smoked out the turn signals, put an HID headlight in it, put some custom mirrors on it(not in the pic). i really want to put some drag bars on it and maybe some risers but i dont know how to choose the right ones for me and the bike. i know their 1 inch bars but i guess i dont know how to choose the right ones. do i just roll the dice and quit being a sissy and just buy some already? any suggestions?

Go to a motorcycle parts store that you like, and ask them to help you find a pair. They should be able to help you pick out a set that will meet your needs, and you can probably take them out to the bike to see how you like them on it.

A good relationship with your local parts store does wonders.

You might be able to ride to a shop and try out bars there. Take yours off at the shop and just hold a few differant ones in front of the bike to see which one you like. Then I bought new bars for my Sportster I went to the Harley shop and bought 4 different ones, then took them home and set them on the risers to see which ones looked good and were most comfortable. One word of advise, your bars now are more comfortable than drag bars. I had mine on for about 4 or 5 years then ended up putting the stockers back on.
