First thing that really jumps out at me is the deal with the Arrow. Are you buying the Arrow (new) from the dealer? If so, then super-shame on them for charging you another $30 to update the tune!
The 12,000 mile service charge sounds pretty high as well. I'm in Springfield, Mo, the local dealership here charges about $200 to check the valves/adjust throttle bodies. Adjustment of the valves would be more, but adjustment, from what I've been reading/seeing on this board over the years, isn't too common unless you rev the piss out of the engine. The rest of the required maintenance on the Striple is very easy to do on your own, unless you just don't have the time, space or inclination to do it.
Overall, the price does not sound that bad, especially considering there just aren't that many Striples to be had in our market.
edit... You won't get bored! lol
