On most vintage BMWs with the exception of the RT model, I have preferred the shallower bend and lower profile of the Euro bars. They just seem to suit my particular anatomy a bit better, and I think they look better as well. The /5 has them, and they are narrower as well, providing tougher slow-speed steering, and a sportier feel. In this case, a set of lower bars came from eBay, and a quick 30 minutes got them installed. In the process, I learned that the bars on the bike were not BMW items anyway.
