Just got a leftover 16 Versys 650. Now I need to buy lots of accessories! Finally giving my KLR 685 (80k miles) a rest buy getting another bike. Glad to join this forum.

Thanks. I do like the color as well. Looked at others and almost bought a different color, but glad I held out for this one. Got just over 1k on in the first month. Limited riding season in WI so we need to make the most of it...

Hopefully I can post in other areas soon. I need some advice on crashbars, highway pegs, and rear panniers/rack. I want the Puig crash bars but they look too high on the bike to be useful for highway pegs.
