I have had my Recon for about 4 or 5 years now. Started off with it on my 2002 Honda Nighthawk 750. Got the Recon 45 saddlebags and Recon 23 tailbag to match. Plus an Outpost. This is very well built luggage.
I was worried that it wouldn't fit the Versys when I traded. But like others have said, simply tuck the magnet flaps under the bag. Even tho' it might wobble a little it will not come off, even whippin' the bike through the Arkansas Dragon!
I have modified my bag a little, putting a Powerlet socket just to the left of the "sunglasses pocket". All the electric wiring is looped under the hydro pouch, with a Chatterbox nesting snuggly in the inside left-hand pocket. The PTT and helmet cable wires come out the front ports. And I connected a forearm mapcase to the front rings, since the map pocket on the bag isn't worth a hoot IMO.
Personaly, I don't think you can find any other tank bag with as many features and for the price.
