I'd be interested if my bike was more of a tourer. Over two hours with clip-ons and rear sets would kill me. Have a great ride and be safe!

My bike is an Suzuki SV650S. A sport bike. Instead of the usual single handlebar, it's bars are individual and are mounted to the fork tubes below the top triple clamp for a lower/forward riding position. Like this:

After a couple hours all that weight on your wrists makes them ache. Soooo not for comfort, but very maneuverable.

I'm debating going with a product called 'Convertibars' that allow you to easily raise and move the bars back for a more upright riding position. Then if I want to go to the track (maybe some day) I could simply lower them.
