Why get Handle Bar Risers?

I see alot of folks on here who have raised their handlebars by 1 inch. What does that do for you? Improve the ergonomics of the seating/posture/back pain??? Thanks! HoosierDaddy

All of the above that you mentioned, but mainly for me, allowed me to stand a bit more straight up while riding.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
