Big improvement on comfort. Also reduced the feeling of front end suspension harshness by taking weight off hands. Great addition for touring!

I won't be fitting risers to my bike but your post prompted me to look at the amount of "extra" cable available from control switches and the brake line on my SD-GT handle bars needed to accommodate risers and it looks pretty tight. Did you have to re-route anything in order to be able to lift the bars up?

Great. Its an easy and relatively inexpensive way to change the character of the bike.
