Hard Luggage system wanted

Hi. Looking for adventure style hard cases and racks for my 2008 Versys. Looked on line but find it quite confusing to figure out what rack goes with what mounting kit and what case is compatible.

Wondering if anyone know what complete kit would work for large Pellican or Trax cases. I wish the retailers would sell this as a kit.

I'd be very interested in a used system too if there are any of you out there willing to sell.

No. but I will. Thanks for the quick reply. Are you aware of a Canadian retailer online that sells complete packages? The duty kind of hits us shopping south of the border and our falling dollar doesn't help either.
Thanks for the heads up though.

Check out the For Sale section. I think Ultra is selling a set of Trax cases.

Try A Vicious Cycle. They recently became a part of Twisted Throttle. You could consider them Twisted Throttle Canada.

HERE is their selection for the '07-'09 Versys 650.

If you want to shop the Twisted Throttle site that is much more "sortable" look HERE. Once you're educated just contact A Vicious directly and let them know what you need. If they do not have it in inventory and we do, we'll get it up to them to deliver to you.

I bought a set from "Dirt Baggs" out of Calgary, but haven't seen them yet as they arrived after I headed S to AZ. Roughly $700 w/ GiVi mounts, and mine are the 9" wide ones, black. Here's a link to their "Facebook".

I'm NOT sure the above link was the right one, so here's an ADV link showing pics:

Be sure to post pics. I follow them on FB as well. Buying a used set up suits my budget this year so if you hear of a complete set up let them know I'm looking. Enjoy AZ. Much warmer than -21 in new liskeard now!

I don't know how much $ ULTRA wants for his set-up. I was working w/ him before I ordered the "Dirt Baggs", but it took a bit long to get pricing and shipping data from him, though I WOULD have bought his Trax set-up!

Thats right , I was a little busy around that time. Actually it took me a full week to pack everything and get the quote from Canada Post. I'm looking to get 50% of what I paid for it.
