The new versys 1000 looks ridiculous! But the price tag is upsetting
Got out for a few hours on what will probably be the last 60+ degree day for some time... after a long weekend around too many people, it was nice.
Led a group ride with some like minded adventure riders the other day. Always a good day when your setting out and enjoying your surroundings. Here are some pictures captured by my friends and I. We went through multiple counties, country roads, ate some BBQ by the local airport and then continued on. Some clocked in about 200 miles round trip.
A little late to add my two cents worth, but I thought I would anyway.
I had a Russel put on my old BMW R 80. Best investment I ever made for that bike. Yes, it did cost me a little over $500 at the time, but it made 500+ mile days not a problem.
I have the Seat Concepts low seat with the gripper top and have put many long hour rides on it. It’s been well worth the money but Terry’s was my second option.
Sargent is not on the level of seat concepts versys 650 seat. No comparison. The SC is an amazing improvement. As far as I can tell the sargent looks great but that's it.
We had some tornados this past weekend and my 18my versys decided to sleep through the storms. Only damage is it scuffed the saddle bag and broke the factory handguard does anyone have any recommendations for new handguards now that I have a reason to upgrade
Yikes. I like my Givi handguards very much in the rain and cold, but I don't have a basis for comparison since my 2015 ABS model didn't come with the OEM guards.
The mounting bracket is in two pieces so I guess if it ever hits the ground it’s just gonna shear off the plastic cover
Barkbusters Storms are a good upgrade with more coverage than the stock unit.
I put the storms on my 09 and love them. They are sturdy. Dropped the bike several times on the MABDR with no damage.
That looks like what I’m looking for
I just installed Barkbuster VPS hand guards on my AT, and they are great. They are also adjustable, having a two position wind deflector. Even in the high position they don't have the coverage that the storms do, but if you live someplace temperate to warm, the VPS kit may suit your needs better.
By coverage I meant wind protection/deflection. They use the same aluminum frame, so protection should be equal.
