Sidebags and windshield finally installed

When I bought my new Versys, I ordered sidebags and a new windshield before finding this site. The sidebags are GIVI and they look great. I'm considering picking up the matching coloured pieces to fit over.

I thought the windshield would be taller. So it's not ideal still, but it does look hot!

I have a side picture as well, but it's too big, so I'm too lazy to try to fit both pictures in.

Riding again regularly with a stable and reliable bike has been so much fun. I can't wait for my first road-trip now!!!

Dennis

Looks good Dennis! Let us know how your first trip goes. I've taken two and have enjoyed them both. The windshield does look good though.

Green

Haha! Yeah, at first I got the Green because I wanted some colour and my only other choice was a Gray motorcycle. But the Green is great and an eye catcher for sure. All of my friends seem to like the green.

I always ride safe! I've been in one "unplanned" accident with a left-turning vehicle. You can never be too safe.

By the way, the new windshield appears to be 50% better. So not ideal for long highway trips since I still get some wind at my head, but it's reduced and city riding is way better!!!!!

Looking good, Dennis, I got my green machine a week ago, already put 400 miles on it. I have the taller windshield with spoiler on order; can't wait to try it out. John.

Its a KMW logo.

There is a guy that makes KMW badges that we used to put on the old concours. I think his email is [email protected] if anyone is interested.

turbo, how do you like the Jardine after you've had it on for awhile? I thought you were turning that bike into a dual-sport bike?

It was to loud for me so I put it up for sale. I am turning her into a DS but right now I am buying a house so I don't have much time to play or ride.
