Prep for the journey was surprisingly quick and easy. Fresh Maxima Maxum4 Premium oil and a K&N; filter kicked off the proceedings. Next, I equipped the Versys to carry five days worth of riding, business and casual attire. First, Givi (www.giviusa.com) supplied a E370NA Monolock top case ($169) and mounting kit ($157). Mounting points for the rack are perfect, case quality is excellent, everything works exactly as it should and it only took an hour to install. The 370 case isn't the largest in the lineup, but matches the Versys' size and holds a surprising amount of stuff. For additional carrying capacity I hit up Helmet House (www.helmethouse.com) for some Cortech TriBag Saddlebags ($169.99) and a Super 10 Liter Tankbag ($119.99), the largest magnetic bag that fit onto the tank.
