New Versys owner from South Africa

Hi Guys,

I'm the brand new owner of a 2014 650 Versys.

So far I have Barkbuster handguards installed, a shad topbox and i'm on my way to get Puig crash bars installed.

Glad to be part of the community

Thumbs up Epic tour finished. Love the versys. Check the video

Hi guys,

I've had my versys for about a year now. As the year went on I added onto the bike to prep it for a long roadtrip I planned for the December break. The trip consisted of mountain passes and loads of scenic routes over the beautiful South Africa.

I had a mate with me on a Yamaha Tenere and together with 3 GoPro we made an epic video. Can't post it at the moment because I'm still a new member but you can find it on youtube as:

Drakensberg and East coast road trip, 2016

It was an epic trip! Very keen to start planning another one and adding more extras on the bike.
Let me know what you guys recommend I should add on next.

Glad to be part of this .

Cheers

Considering where you live, Paul - how about a rack for (and c/w...) a .458 Win Mag rifle...?
