whats a farkle?

Traded in my 2016 Vulcan S and Gladius for a Versys. I really hope it's everything it promises and more. I already miss putting my feet on the floor. Cant wait to take it out on a long trip.

Don't look up the definition of farkle. It is disgusting.

This is the accessory list for my '11 Versys.

* pyramid fender extender
* radiator guard
* sw motech light mounts
* Denali LED running lights
* sw motech GPS mount
* sw motech engine guards
* sw motech highway pegs
* Terry Adcock custom seat
* givi saddle bag mounts
* givi v35 saddle bags
* Kawasaki color matched hand guards
* Kawasaki color matched panels for v35.
* Kawasaki tank pad
* admorelighting LED run/turn/brake lights for V35 bags.
* skenedesign LED run/brake lights on sides of license plate.
* pyramid chain and rear tire guard color matched.
* Kawasaki heated grips
* Kawasaki 12 volt accessory outlet

I call these accessories. Someone thought farkled would be a good way to describe accessories.

Lower the bike with Motowerks lowering kit and slide your butt over when you stop. This is common with dirtbikes. You made the right decision going with the Versys for light-touring.
