New Versys rider in Kansas City

Hello All,
Just picked up "Kermit" my new (leftover) 2014 Versys 650 yesterday from Liberty Cycle Center in Liberty, MO (Kansas City) - Really nice folks there!

Back on a bike for the first time in a year since selling my '02 Bandit 1200 when I relocated from California (miss the roads! miss the weather! do NOT miss the prices and politics )

Planning to commute frequently and find some fun weekend rides in the Heartland. And accessorize of course - Top case will be first!

Looking forward to being on the forum!
Rob

Thanks Stoley! I see the side cases are Givi (I've had very good experience with Givi top cases) - what's your top case? Givi or Kawasaki? and any opinion between the two? (quality, functionality)?

Sounds great! A little busy with both work and house projects (new-to-me house, needs everything), but looking forward to rides - at least a coffee run

It's the Kawasaki one but I'm pretty sure it's made by Givi, I bought the bike used last year and it came with the top case and I just recently added the side cases it was a little bit of a mess getting it to work but now that everything is on there I really like the cases.

Welcome! I purchased a left over 14 in December, and just left KC last month (Ft Leavenworth). Relocated to Cali. Glad to see another Versys rider in the Midwest!
