I scored these locally :)

I was looking at our local craigslist and found these beauties

2017 Versys 1000 luggage taken off early gentlemen I bought them from fitted his motorcycle with all givi.
There the wrong color but at the price I paid that's an easy to fix (new color Panels later)
Here are them mounted up.










still trying to figure out how to pack this odd shape




cheapest I could find on line for everything I got new was $950

MY Price $150
Turk and Doug Just Doug like this.

Great bargain! They are a cool -but odd - shape those OEM boxes. Anyone know what the capacity is on them? 30L?

Always trust your cape.

ACTUALLY I like the combo of white and silver.

They ARE awkward to load, but you'll figure it out. I went to Alaska w/ mine, camping for almost three weeks, last June, and it all worked out.

Amazing! You're better than my wife at cramming incredible amounts of stuff into small spaces, and I thought she was the world champion. How wrong I was, and am. Well done, Eddie.

For most uses the odd shape is fine. Stuffing a jacket or a bag of groceries in there works well. But I do struggle with commuting to work because my rectangular bags for work don't fit in very well at all. I plan to replace my factory luggage with something after market this summer.

I always buy the liners for side opening bags. Just makes life so much easier. I've had my Givi V35s for 10 years now and they are on the 3rd bike and have gone 50,000 miles.

I just replaced my stock bags with Givi trekker outbacks. That odd shape is weird, but you'll learn to pack it better. They are surprisingly roomy. I was able to keep all my gear for a 2 week camping trip in them, other than clothes, which went in a waterproof duffel.
