New '11 Owner

Greetings,

I'm a new owner, but an old forum reader.....but just decided to become a member. I live near the St. Louis area and decided to buy a Versys quite some time ago. I finally did in late February and have since ridden about 3500 miles. The weather has been so good since my purchase that it's allowed me to ride a lot more than usual.

Anyway, once I get a few posts in this section, I'll try to post a pic of the fabrication effort of my soft saddle bag support (for my Nelson Rigg CL950). They've worked great since installation and keep the bags at a perfect perpendicular angle.

Thanks for all the other opinions and such I've read since browsing the forum. I've since added foam grips, an Airhawk, and moved my Alaskan Sheepskin over from my Yamaha XT. This bike is a lot of fun to ride.

Cheers,
Jon

Welcome. Looking forward to seeing your supports as I just purchased the same Nelson bags. Ride safe.

Here are a few pics of my Versys. Once I have full access to the forum, I'll post the saddle bag support pictures in the General Forum under the thread titled "Soft Saddle Bags." The sheepskin seat cover is not sitting flat in the attached pics, therefore it looks like kinda funny.

My apologies, that soft saddle bag topic is under "Technical Discussions."
