Has anyone put a set of these on a Versys? What brackets did you use? Pics? With all my rain gear, my tail bag is full, so I was thinking of adding side bags. I think these would look cool with the lids painted green to match my bike. Thanks in advance.
I had E-21's on my old V-Strom. I really liked them because they had lots of space yet kept a relatively narrow profile. They are also reasonable in price. you will need the E-21 luggage set (comes in pair) and the appropriate mounting brackets (sold separately.) I got mine at RL Motorcycles http://www.rlmotorcycles.com/cgi-bin/eShop/index.cgi
I've been using them for 2 plus years everyday, in fact I haven't taken them off since I put them on and love them. As for painting them, you can, but the thing I liked most is they are cheap and flat black, so when (not IF) you kick them getting on and off it is no big deal. All the other bags I had on previous bikes were factory painted and looked GREAT, until I used them, then kicks, rocks, etc marked them all up.
Thanks everyone. I saw several pics in the gallery, and I like the looks. Marc11, you have a good point, so if I get a set I will leave them matte black. With all the afternoon summer storms here they will likely be in use almost everyday.
