One other question..

What's the most popular (that should translate as reliable and not the most
expensive) way to make the S model more comfortable re: bar risers?

How much rise is too much (as in - looks stupid)?

I once saw the 1000S with normal bars, and it looked.. wrong.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to get the naked version and forget all this
clip-on stuff, but that one in the post above looks nice..

Bike ergo site says I'd have about 38 lean angle on the bike with my
height (5'11"), and I had 15 on my 650R. I'd like a bit more then 15,
but 38 sounds like too much.

But then again, the Futura and VFR, universally praised for comfort..
are around 33-34. I can do that with 1" risers. More or less.
