Couple of things with sisy bars. 1) price, how much do you want to spend? 2) what are you going to use it for, looks, riding with a passenger, lash things to when you travel? You can spend from 2-5 hundred dollars on a sissy bar (and luggage rack, sometimes included), just depends on your budget and what you want it do do. Most passengers seem to prefer the taller sissy bar and pad, saying its more comfortable for the ride. The taller ones also assist in tying luggage on and seems more stable for it on trips. Comes down to; your decision. Pick what you want for your application and go for it.
