I was going to get the Kawasaki luggage but they were on back order for ever. The Givis which are the same thing took three weeks to get. Now I will have to oder another set.

I was visiting my local dealer late last week & they had a set on the counter. Pricey, though...

I could have gotten the Kawasaki bags for a lot less then the Givis. I just did not want to wait.

From aguy on the Versys Uk forum. He knew I was looking and sent me a PM and I was so happy.

I had fun today. Caught in some HUGE rain (only a southerner would understand). I did about 60 miles, on some fun roads, on the V. Before i rode I bicycled 1.5 hours.

I have had a really great day

Did I mention I LOVE this bike? Fun to hold on with your knees, wide handlebars which I love, plenty of power (for me), and FooK... it is fun

Sorry, it's been a little while since I've ridden anything but a scooter (scooters are fun to ride btw).

I'm thinking I need a gel pad seat, that scorpion thing, and mirrors that I can see the stupid fOOkers behind me

What a great little bike for a 6'3 guy...

Oh, almost forgot. I rode the bike to lunch which is right before the really fun roads. The restaurant is about 15 miles from my house. Hot church babes everywhere. I ate outside (before the HUGE rain), and while enjoying my meal watched beautiful southern women, who were wearing beautiful Sunday spring dresses, everywhere around me. It was wonderful! I love beautiful southern girls, in thin spring dresses, especially an abundance of them, and I was on my new Versys

Anyhow, I loved my day and I love this bike!

What in life is better than looking at beautiful women that are wearing their spring finest, a WONDERFUL new bike, fun roads, and the turn around point is a Porsche dealership?? (looking at cool cars is fun!)

I had a great day

Rainbow trout caught from a cold north Ga. stream taste really good. I bought me a small rod and reel to carry on my Versys. It will be great when I get my new Versys

William, bikes are my second love, so you ride mine while I go trout fishing in your spot!

I have the Happy Trails panniers and they are awsome! With the tail rack and the Givi screen it looks like a dual sport now.

Now I just wish finding the right tires was as easy of a choice

I did not have much luck this weekend. The creeks are so clear it is hard to sneak up on them. I was hoping for some rain to make them a little dingy but it never happend. With gas prices so high I pretty much had the whole thing to myself. I guess that is one good thing about gas being so high.

Scorpion Exhaust

Anyone have a recommendation on where I can get the Scorpio Exhaust for the Versys here in the US?
After I listened to the sound clip on YouTube I gotta have one.
Thanks

OK, I found one. Am I looking for the Scorpion for the Ninja 650R? Is that going to fit OK on my Versys?
