New Versys 650 LT in Roseville, CA

Hi Versys folks! I'm delighted so far with my new 2016 650 LT. I'm an older guy (68) who's ridden for many years. I finally got tired of pushing around almost 800lbs of cruiser, a Vulcan 1600 Classic. Even though it was super comfortable going straight down the road, riding through my favorite types of back roads in the Sierra left me wanting something more sporty (more fun). No bike is perfect, of course and I'll be changing a few things as I can afford them in the future.

I'm looking at the Givi D4114ST Windscreen as too much air gets by the stock one for my taste, and lowering footpeg blocks. I already purchased the Givi Top case rack, but I'm looking (in vain so far) for a rack with a passenger backrest for my wife who occasionally rides with me. This is one in development from Sargent for the V 1000, but I won't spend $400+ for one if they make one for the 650.

I have a Givi Top Case with the optional Back Rest and my girl loves it.

Thanks, yes I was thinking of a top case with backrest if I can't get a simple backrest.
