New to Versys, ready to adventure across Oregon

Hello fellow Versys riders! After years of owning a trouble ridden VTX 1300 I finally bit the bullet and traded it for a new 2014 Versys 650. The dealer sold it to me as an "Adventure bike" and I have to say, its a lot of fun adventuring on it.

Looking forward to using the forums. I'm going to start accessorizing since there is zero storage, so I'll be searching the luggage posts.

Any good Portland riding groups?

G'day.
I had Givi racks and Kappa bags on my 2012 (same model as your 2014).
