Hi all. My name is Matt and I'm from SE Wyoming (by way of the USAF). I'm the proud owner of a "new to me" '09 green Versys with just over 1000 miles on it and so far I'm really happy with it. I traded off my Z1000 to get it, and although I miss the power, the 650 twin is more than enough for the type of riding that I do and is, by FAR, more comfortable. I also have an '08 KLR and the Versys seems to compliment it very well. I have yet to take it on any long trips, but am planning a 300 mile mountain excursion with some friends in the very near future. I've been "lurking" on the site for several weeks now, and really enjoy the site.
One mod that I intend to do immediately is to put some Coretec saddle bags on it. I was on the Happy Trails website the other day and saw their SL racks, which I would like to get to help support the bags, but the pic was for a KLR. I sent an email off asking if they had a pic so I could see what they looked like on the bike, how they mounted etc., but they responded that they didn't have any. Is anyone else running these racks? Is there a better option for coretech soft bags?
