Pic request and givi discusion

I'm trying to locate a pic of a green v with the slilver or black givi's on it. Here is my confusion, i can buy the givi bags and rack from sportTour much cheaper than from the dealer, But the dealer is the only one that has the green pannels i guess. So i'm trying to see if the looks difference is worth the added cost.




From Kawasaki:
131LUU0018 Saddlebag Trim Kit 2009 Green $119.95
K161600024 Saddlebag Brackets Black, not available in Red $219.95
131LUU0004A Hard Saddlebags Trunk is Black, color trim REQUIRED $599.95


Total: $939.85

From Sporttour
Givi V35G730 - Pair V35G730 $549.00 $549.00 Givi PLX447+447Kit PLX447+447Kit $223.00 $223.00

Total $772.00

$167 difference
Any help would be greatly apreciated. BTW i'm setting a $1,000 budget for my farkles.

Good job of changing the color on the blue one to green. That is exactly what mine looks like. I thought about the color panels, but decided not to due to the price and possibility of scratching the color panel. Good thing I did.

On the Versys, I have to remember that the old addage of "if your bars fit, so will the rest of the m/c". I tangled with some traffic cones in Pendleton, OR while visiting there. Oops, scuffed bag. They now have there first marks and I don't feel so bad about any minor scratches.

thanks, all i did was use the photobucket editor. I think i'm going to either get the gloss black or the gloss silver pannels, the green has a black frame so i don't know if the silver will look right. Could you post up a pic of yours?
