definitely aftermarket bars and grips on your scoot - it definitely gives it more of a feel like the VN750's bigger brothers.
all a matter of comfort when you ride. The stock bars sit up higher, so if those bars aren't comfortable, you might want to look into a stock set. Me personally, I'm very comfortable with the stock bars. And I agree, those have a LOT more room for accessories.
On a semi-related tangent, what is that clock/etc thing you have on top of the tree? I'm looking for something like that, but I can't find one.
