A T Bag weekend bag
A Joe Rocket Manta
This combo will work for me if I motel it. But if I camp, I need a bigger seat bag. As soon as my FFF (farkle fest fund) get's replenished I'll check out a Motofizz Camping Seat Bag. Not waterproof but they provide a raincover.

That combo should hold a couple weeks worth of stuff.
Are the bags from Kawasaki that say "Versys" on them actually made by Givi? And are they sold by Kawi at an inflated price on what you can buy them direct from Givi for?
What is the model no. of the Givi bags that look like the "Versys" bags? I really like that style.
I'd really like a soft bags but, I just don't see any that look like they would fit right. I would really like to not have to install any hardware and be able to use soft bags, but just don't see any like that anywhere.
I shot this one today, on Snickersville Turnpike in Loudon County, VA.
That is the same setup I have but with red trim pieces (just got the trunk assembled today and have to paint the trim piece red to match).
Pics don't do that V46 justice - it's fricken huge! I can carry a lot of beer in the saddle bags and trunk now. Everyones going to want to follow me! (kidding, I in no way support drinking and riding, but transporting without drinking is okay...)
Those are the SW Motech quick lock frames, right? Did you get yours from Caribou? I have the Caribou panniers from another bike and was thinking about putting the Quick Lock mounts on the Versys. Would it be possible for you to take a photo of the bike with the bags and frames removed? I am interested in these frames because you can take them off and the bike looks pretty clean, or so I hear. But I have never seen a photo of the residue left after one removes the frames. Also, is Caribou's mount to the SW Motech frame solid? I loved the mounts for their bags for use with the BMW. Very substantial, and to my mind, more durable than the plastic molded mounting brackets I have seen on some cases.

I will pop them off and take a pic but yeah you will not noticed any mounts unless you look hard. I did not buy the Caribou mounts. Seemed pretty silly to spend that much on brackets when all I have to do is turn four quick lock cams to remove the whole shooting match. My Pelicans are bolted right to the frames.
I sure like the looks of the hard bags, especially when they are painted to match.
I am using the soft luggage, because I do quite a bit of dirt road riding. Some of the roads get so rough, I am not sure the hard bags will stand up to the constant battering the washboard roads would subject them to.
The soft stuff just soaks up the bumps and no rattles or noise.
One thing sure to happen when riding the gravel stuff, is the bike will eventually wind up laying on it's side,(experience talking) usually a soft layover, but on it's side at any rate. The soft stuff even prevents the other plastic parts on the bike from getting scratched as well.
I guess the best of both worlds is to have a hard set for times on the pavement, and then soft for the trips that will contain some gravel.
Anybody else think these buffalo wings taste a lot like chicken?
