I got a used Yamaha XVS650A Classic yesterday (see below) and will have my Learners after a visit to the RTA for the knowledge test tomorrow (hey, when you know what you want and the right opportunity comes up, why wait!). It came with V&H pipes, saddlebags, flame mirrors (which I'm swapping back for the originals) and chrome side covers instead of blue. I'm interested in getting crash bars, which I've also seen called highway bars. I can see that they provide protection and add some chrome for the cruiser. Is it a no-brainer for an inexperienced road rider? I've read that some people worry about (or have had) the bars hit the road on corners. Any recommendations on which ones to get or avoid? The only other mods I'm currently looking at are a removable windshield for longer trips, probably a mid-size; and maybe another seat as I have low back issues and I've read the stock one can feel a bit hard after a while in the seat. I'm sure there will be more mods later as the range of stuff you can get is amazing - you want it, you can get it in chrome! Thanks.
