I did some research today regarding my handlebars, I then called Dom. at Procycles to get some facts regarding the sore shoulders and neck pain from the RS bars even with my current pullback/riser bars. They still don't fix that issue on longer rides. He suggested the Wunderlich Handel Bar Conversion Kit part number 31000502. That sounded the same as Troy mentioned. No guarantee that this will do the job but it is a start and it looks as if by going down this parth it just might work out. so here is what I got in the conversion kit and a trade discount that helped ease the $$$ a little. One of the mechanics at work said he will fit them for me so that is saving on labour costs.
The only thing these will be Black as they are the only set on stock and apparently the Germans have discontinued the Silver as per the list below from their website.

This tube-style handlebar conversion replaces the stub handlebar of the RS with our exclusive and ergonomic yet sporty tube-style handlebar. The more upright seating position not only makes the RS much better for long-distance journeys, it also significantly improves handling.
The facts:
  • Ergonomically offset handlebar for optimum seating position
  • The original brake and clutch cables can continue to be used
  • Pre-drilled for easy fitting of the handlebar fittings
  • Aluminium tube-style handlebar with 32 mm diameter
  • Width / height / offset 798/100/172 mm
  • Brackets/small handlebar brackets included in delivery
  • Incl. adapter for attaching the original handlebar ends
  • Fine finish, pearl blasted
  • Available in black or silver
  • With ABE

Yep she came on the first test ride, loves the seat and the whole seating position.
If the weather holds (which I don't think it will, 1 nice day in how long?) we will ride together tomorrow.
WOW, I had to re-read that. That’s a interesting 1st ride, I might start Dinking The Wife, I think it will take 2 rides to achieve what you did mate.

Great pics as per usual AB, congrats on the new ride. Personalized plate?

Engine crash bars
Headlight guard
Full exhaust upgrade, + Cat removal
Sports muffler
Rear hugger
Front hugger
Rear luggage plate
Top box
Pivot pegs
Tyre valves with read out.

I had to go looking for the front hugger, I’d never heard of such a thing. Do you mean those blue to valve caps with a readout up on the bars? Looks great mate.
