Lower Handlebars ?

Hi has anyone fitted lower handlebars to there Versys ?
I find the riding position on the V very upright and was thinking of fitting some Renthal MX type bars to the V ,to give a slightley more leant foward riding position .

Any Ideas / comments ?

I have certainly thought about it. At 6'5" (196cm) tall, i catch a lot of air. Plus, I'm used to mountain bike riding and having a fair amount of weight on my wrists. I don't know if lower bars would be best, or trying to do something about that big, honking spacer that is between the top of the tree and the handle bars. Seems like there might be turning issues with the bars hitting the fairing if they go too low.
