Arrived, But Not Here - Bar Suggestions

Well, here I am in Cordova, Tn. I've arrived, but not here.

Well, the trip was eventful and I took lots of pic's. Even got a couple of pictures of a guy from Hiroshima, Japan in Holbrook, Az. He started in Anchorage, AK! Wow!!! Heavely loaded Cannondale.

Someone backed into my bike on the back of my truck or the shop that replaced my fuel pump backed into something and bent my handle bars. So, I'm open to suggestions for new bars and whether or not to switch out the brifters for bar ends.

When I think of the millions of miles tourists have logged on every continent and cranny of the world on simple, easily adjustable, very durable, friction option barends......hard not to put them on your "long way from home & civilization" bike.
