Ive 3 luggage boxes and been to Slovakia
First of all this is a great site, I like coming here and reading posts about things specifically about the versys.
A mechanic made a slight mod to the bracket that holds the side boxes on so i could put a top box on. We cut off the passangers handels filed and smoothed the rough edges, repainted it and used longer bolts to hold down the two brackets.
Now it looks like a big bike from behind, and these boxes are the offical kawasaki boxes.
Oh yea and drove to Slovakia from Dublin last summer, my Slovak workmate flew there to his home, stayed with him, he bought a bike and we drove back stopping in Prauge, Amsterdam and Wales. Done 5000km in two weeks, Versys performed great, no trouble at all, have it 8 months now and up to 12000km.
See pic about mod for 3 boxes.
Sorry i didnt mean a bike mechanic done the job, it was actually a truck mechanic i work with.
