New guy

Hi all.
I bought a 2009 Versys on Friday. Low mileage, pipe and chip. Quite a change from my Ultra Classic
I have been riding since '66, mostly metrics until 10 years ago when the Harley bug bit. Now back to Kawasaki (had '66 Samurai, '67 Avenger SS, and '99 Connie - loved that bike!)
I work 100 miles from home, and stay the week. My first order of business is to figure the best (cheapest) way to carry clothes, laptop and lunches so I can ride instead of driving.
Later,
Buck

You might like to take a look at the Bike Bandit web site. They have a Saddlemen TS1450R tail pack for $113.00. Looks pretty good and the price is nice too.

I would suggest a lockable Givi top box with an SW-Motech rear rack to mount it on. Not the cheapest option but probably the best solution for what you want it for.
