Yeah, the bar and the pegs are add-on. I got them
from my dealer for about $235.00. Then I also got a
drivers seat quick-relese backrest from ebay for $99.00.
Between the bar and pegs and the backrest it's almost
like riding in a lounge chair.
Hope you enjoy many happy miles on your bike.
I love mine so much.
You made a great choice, ride safe.

If you dont mind what did you pay for it?
Got mine for 7900 just wondering if it was a good deal.

Still have not been out for a ride yet.

Sounds to me like you got a good deal. I paid 8 something,
I don't recall the exact number, but I also threw in another
$650.00 for the Y.E.S. extended warrenty whitch gives me
a total of five years coverage.
But I feel like I got a good deal too because of the quality
that Yamaha puts into their bikes. It does everything I ask it to do,
and it's just so beautiful looking. I got mine back in early May
and have put almost 5000 miles on it so far, I've ridden it thru
New York, Pennsivainia, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, and it's
made for one very, very fun summer so far. Couldn't be happier
with it. I am gonna put some passing lamps and Cobra 2 into 2 slashdown pipes on it next spring.
So get out there and ride that thing.
