New to Adventure Bikes

Just bought a 2018 Versys X 300. Had lots of motorcycles in the past but never an adventure bike. I tried several bikes but loved the way the 300 performed and I especially like the size. I'm not a mod junkie but would like to add some luggage, engine guards, and skid plate. Any suggestions on must haves would be appreciated. Will probably use the bike for around town riding and the occasional off road ride with my grand children on 4-wheeler trails. Excited to get started.

Welcome to the forum. Its a great little adventure bike, I wish I needed a reason to replace my KLR, I would choose a X-300 if I did.

This is a great article that goes way too far with adding mods, but you can pick and choose what you desire from their extensive list
