I added the highway bars plus the chrome radiator cover and really like the way they look - the bars look beefy but still seem to flow nicely with the rest of the bike, not to mention all the extra glitter!

I don't care for the look of the rear bars - seems to square up the engine area - almost looks like portable generator sitting in there...
I suppose with both front and rear bars you've really got a better chance of protecting the bike if you drop it though. And I was wondering if they interfere with the passenger; it sounds like that could be an issue. Think I'll spend the $$ for floor boards instead.
