Congrats, on the recent purchase. Looks to be a clean example for sure. Not sure how tall you are. But ROX Risers were a must for me. The wider bars had me reaching too far out. Which helped relax the back and shoulders. Stay away from the OEM Heated Grips. Get yourself some aftermarket. They will serve you much better. Both more reliable and cheaper as well. If that’s a must on your list. Either Apollo or Oxford would be where I would steer you. Rider lowering pegs (Motowerks) were also a nice addition for me. They provided a little more bend in the knee over OEM. Just make sure you are not lazy in the sweeping turns. Keep the balls of the feet on the pegs! Unsolicited advice I realize. Those changes were game changers in my riding comfort. Enjoy the new ride.

When I took an "advanced riding" course, the BEST advice I got was to ride w/ the balls of my feet on the footpegs.

Your boot will not touch down doing that, UNLESS you are WAY OVER "BANKED", in which case you'll have OTHER issues....
You are correct on the foot positioning at all times. My point that I was trying to make. With the suggested foot pegs. It is imperative that you remember and position your balls of the feet on the pegs. No getting lazy. Otherwise, you will find your foot potentially being pulled under the peg.
