also added heated grips (what kawasaki is offering) and they saved my hands several times - maybe i should also add handprotectors

generally i spent ~19000 km in 2012 on my Versys 1000 and i am totally happy with the bike
Sure agree on the exposed radiator. Been using some old soft saddlebags, but think I'll go with the same cases you've got. Going to add barkbusters for wind protection, but probably not heated grips. Up here, by the time you need heated grips it's going to be winter so quickly there's not much cold weather riding to be had. Still waiting for spring....
