May I ride your Gen 3 with stock handlebar?

I finally got my new-to-me 2016ES. It has a Helibar riser, I believe currently set in the rearmost position. I'm not sure I want to keep it. I like the stock position/bars on my 2005.

Is there someone in the San Antonio area with a I could go riding with who has Gen 3 stock bars I could try?

PM me.

I've got an 08 Gen II. Don't know if Gen II & III are different in riding position. But you can ride it if you want.

Appreciate the offer. Leaning towards waiting a Gen III. But maybe we can make it a threesome!

For what is is worth I had an 09 with the Heli Clamp. Those don't fit on ES models so out it went when I got my 17 which came with a riser. On the 17 ES I moved the riser to the rear position and I am happy with it. Long story short I don't need the Heli system for the ES.
