VFR bars

Sssooo i did a 2 hour and a bit ride yesterday with my dad and one thing I know for sure, I need to change those bars. They previous owner put slightly higher clip ons and yes it has made a world of difference but for me I just can't ride like that, so here is my question
What bars did you guys go too, and if your able to tell me how long it took to convert to straight bars, and if you have part numbers that would be great. I've done some googling but haven't really found anything.

So you want higher bars or full bar instead of clip ons?

Yes, I was riding a DL1000 before and I can't really do the leaned over or hunched over riding position. I do like the bike but just that one thing is really holding me back from doing a good trip with this bike

Hey Joe, what kind of bars do you have on your bike? Is that your bike and you in the avatar?

These are my A and B bikes.

Daily bike (givi luggage) has heli bars a bit taller than stock I think.

Nice clean barely used SSS and USD fork bike has Apex risers to fit the CBR1000RR forks. 3" rise.

The vfr bars are pretty nice too. I have a set as backup.
