I've been lurking for several months, mostly while I was making a purchasing decision between several bikes (and multiple models of Versys).
Ended up purchasing a 2008 Versys 650 from a local-ish dealer already set up with some Givi sidecases and a not-quite-Givi topcase. All in all I have really liked the bike as an on-again-off-again full time commuter. Admittedly, its a bit taller and heavier than I would like...but that makes it nice and comfortable for the long haul.
See you on the streets
