Hello everyone!! Hope you are all doing great and staying healthy.

New member here and the Tenere is my first ADV bike. Loving it so far.


The thing is that, i saw some pictures of me riding the bike and i noticed that i lean a bit to the front. My hands are not very long and i feel that the bar is somewhat far away from me.


I was thinking of SW MOTECH's bar risers - bar backs in order for the bar to come a bit up and back to me, making me sit more upward.



SW-MOTECH bar back in black for Ø22mm handlebars can be positioned 21 mm backwards and 30 mm upwards, promotes a relaxed and back-friendly sitting position.


Notice that for now, the bikes main use is on the streets and i am planning to do some light offroading anytime soon.


Is the bike going to feel different on the handling? And if yes, for better or for worse?


Thank you all!

I am also wondering if anyone has any feedback about these or any other bar back risers.  I'm experiencing the same issue, just a bit too much of a forward lean for comfortable riding on the roads to the fun.
