I just got one for my Versys - its called a Fatfoot and I would imagine you got it from Ernie Bell. No more kickstand sinking in soft surfaces
yip. That is it. and the service is perfect from Ernie. 1 check send and 5 days later I got the Fatfoot. what good service!

Yes and it works great.

Reason according to Progressive, Kawasaki list the Versys as a Sportbike!!! The Beamer GS gets a Streetbike rating for either the 650GS or 1200GS.
I have Progressive and I told the agent that it was a dual purpose bike. It even stated it was dual purpose on the build of origin.

I only have liability coverage that costs me less than $200/year. Did you guys buy more coverage than that?

Does anyone have a pic of a "Vario" windshield on a Versys?

I am 99.9 % certain I will be a Versys owner next week.

Are the stock hardbags made by Givi?

Any pics of these??

Yes, the OE bags are made by Givi. There are 9999 pictures of those bags and that screen in this thread. Start at either end and start scrolling in the other direction until you can't stand to see another picture of a farkled Versys.

Great bike. Halfway through breaking mine in. The first 500 miles were sure tough holding it to below 4k rpm!
