Hello from TN

Just Purchased a 2008 Versys. Planning to do part of the TAT in Spring. I am now working at that goal. I am def. on a budget and will take time to get the bike sort of where I want.

Things Needed:
Skid Plate (Alguard would be nice but cannot find)
Barkbusters or of the like
Rear Hugger
Front Fender Extender
On/Off Road Pegs
A set of Shinko 705s
Experience for this particular Bike and on the Road (XR250R for years is only experience)

Things I have:
Sliders
Soft Bags
Crash Bar
Lots of Ride Gear

*It would be nice if there was a low cost sissy bar type rear backrest with a a little rear shelf that bolted right in.

Wow. Talk about yucky (that's a USAF technical term) exhaust headers! I'm very impressed.
