handlebar risers ?

Just wondering if anyone out there had handlebar risers. I'm 6'2 and think the bar risers might help as the bars seem a tad low for me. Any pros - cons would be appreciated...

ZRod sent me some pics when I was converting my forks and I noticed his method of taller risers. Just add another top cap on the bottom side of the bars and use longer bolts.

Love the bar risers, I've got the Eagle brand risers.

Besides making riding positions more comfortable, also makes adjusting steering head bearings a lot easier.
