    Check out Wingstuff.com ... they sell risers. I used a set of show chrome on my wings and loved them.

    I had an 08 with Champion kit and I'm gonna tell ya ... trikes take a hit compared to 2 wheelers. The faster you go, the lower the mileage. Best I ever got was 38 something on a trip on roads that the speed limit was 60 mph. At 75-80, it dropped to the low 30's.

    I have the Kuryakyn risers on my Gold Wing trike. Don’t know if they are the best or not but they are definitely suitable for me.

    As to mileage, my 2008 GL1800 with a MotorTrike kit runs around 30-32 mpg (depending terrain, wind, and passing) if I keep it at just under 3000 RPM which equals about 70’sh. But I find it difficult to keep her around that speed on the interstate....my right hand just keeps twisting that throttle.
