Cool New member from Reno, NV

Hello to all!

Just upgraded my trusty (and small but fun) '01 Suzuki GS500 with 2016 Versys 650 LT.

Aside from oxford heat grips and additional tall windshield bike is stock with barely 3k miles on it!

Being 6'3" tall, with wide frame and long arms - I searched long and hard for a new commuter bike, and Versys ended up beating older Tiger 1050 (although I loved how it rode, and power), VStroms (1k and 650s), and NC750X (and the likes).

I hope this new chapter will last a long time! Hope to see you around.

Thanks,

Bolt

Only upgrade I ordered was Givi monorack with M5M plate, and was wondering if anyone has *ANY* experience with smaller M5(M) compatible top cases (LT has side cases, but I'm a commuter 95% time, thus my intent to put top case).

I can't seem to find 35L or so cases (40 was the smallest) for monokey

Thanks,

B.
