At the suggestion of Mr. James Browne from the GPS Adventure Touring forum, I ordered the pannier mounts to act as "crash bars" for the back half of the bike:

I also replaced the silver luggage rack with a black one:

Here is a view of the tail with the racks installed. You can also see the finger sheilds under the grab bar:

This bike really is in pristine condition - especially considering it is almost six years old! The only real scuffs on it were low on the tanks. I suspect they probably occured during loading:

Originally, I was just going to get a bit of touch-up paint but after seeing some of the 950s and 990s on the Adventure Rider forums, I decided that the carbon fiber tank protectors would look better:

I also decided to add on the clutch and ignition cover protectors:

Surprisingly enough, they are simply glued on with RTV:
