Picture Request: Versys with out bags

Looking for just stock, bare, off the showroom floor bikes to check out. I see alot of you run saddle bags, and they are big and bulky and subtract from the bike in a picture. Since I wont be running any bags I was hoping I could get everyone to post a picture, (or ten) of your bikes with out the bags!

Thanks

Before you farkled it or got rid of that blue stripe on the front tire!!! It doesn't look like you have even hit a bug yet!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

You're right, it was the maiden voyage, first trip after I left the shop. Put a 100km on it that day. Nice and slow.

Honestly, I love the look without all the excess bags etc. To each his own I guess. I'm recovering from shoulder surgery and I can't even get the bike out of the shed for a picture or two... . I have modified mine with some custom vinyls, tidy tail, LED signals and lighting for the night rides, and the Arrow can. I'm waiting on my new rear tire and rear tire hugger, plan to post pics when I get back enough strength to get it out of the shed. Will post a pic or two shortly. Have taken the bike out a few times to Bike Nights at the restaurant parking lot, and it's hilarious how almost everyone walks past the modded Harleys, Victory's and Ducaties but stop to take a pic of my bike....the cheapest by far of the bunch and in my opinion, the sexyiest. I would love to have 2 V's, one for touring with all the farkle, one stripped down for running with the sport bike crowd.....

Best of both worlds. Stock and with top case and tail bag. Turn a key push a button Top case off . un-hook bungees tail bag off. Bike looks great both way

It wouldn't be a good forum unless you included a 2010...

Here's mine. Unfortunately can't brandish it with bags... difficult when there isn't a frame built to hold them yet. I have been told they should be available by the beginning of May. I wish the 2010 also came in silver or red. The black is just so dang hard to see at night. But I must admit, I love the fact that I may not see another 2010 in my area.
