Hello All,

I am the proud owner of my first bike, 100% mine, a 2007 Versys.

First addition will be crash bars, anyone else have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Welcome. Heated grips are a good investment , and higher windshield, a better seat and the list goes on. Although I don't think the stock disappoints either ,it's still a capable machine. I've been farkling mine since 2010 and almost done with it. But I've said that before.:)

Welcome from Ottawa!

I have the sw motech bars on my '08, and like them. And if I can install them, anyone can. I purchased mine through A Vicious Cycle (www.aviciouscycle.ca), which is relatively local. They carry a pretty good selection of aftermarket parts for the V.

Good choice on crash bars as first farkle. I didn't go that route and a scratched fairing and bent rear brake lever later I saw the light. Sliders for the rear axle never hurt either and actually soft saddlebags can help protect in slow/no speed drops as well.

Greetings from SW Ontario.

I agree crash bars good first farkle. Then I would consider adding hand guards and heated grips.

FYI a great local dealer is Blue Streak Racing, he is also a twisted throttle dealer and about 20% cheaper than a vicious cycle. If you are on GTAM, you will see Blue Streak has great reviews.

Welcome from Ottawa. Crash bars and bigger shield (VStream) and heated grips (Oxford) or heated gloves (even warmer but more expensive).

I'm from Ottawa as well. Where are you purchasing your parts for the Versys 1000 (assuming you have the 1000).

Yes - hand-guards to protect hands and levers along w/ the crash-bars...:thumb:
