How wide are these tip to tip once all put together? I'm trying to stay at 34".

I have a set of chrome Chizeled Lo handlebars. While they were better than the stock bars, they weren't quite wide enough for me. Don't know how the wrist angle compares to the Yaffe's as I haven't tried those, but they are not as straight of a wrist angle as my KST Customs bars. I'll be listing them for sale in the classified's soon.

Great looking bike, can you tell me what the width is tip to tip, with it all put together, I'm thinking around 35".

This is what intrigues me about the HD Chizeled Lo bar. 31.6" tip to tip and not too tall. I'm liking the drag bar look but do not want to be in a tucked in riding position.

Yeah, the touring bikes are probably more comfortable for most in more of an upright riding position.
