It would cost them pennies more to offer a complete package.
I have a 2019 Versys 1000LT SE and the bags are the same as the Ninja 1K. Size is 28 liters. 2 liters smaller than the my 2014 FJR. Abit of an Odd shape. I have to carry my laptop in the top box because of it.

FjrjrF I could see myself on a Bergman, weather protection, lots of storage. With the 15" tubless wheel upfront and a 14" rear tube? I would have to wonder what the turn in is like. I guess I would have to test drive.... but I ain't there yet!

So you're saying a Bergman 650 is a step thru motorcycle or what exactly? The manufacturer's call them scooters.

Well, I'm not ready yet anyway, so maybe when I am ready ( few more years) they will see fit to bring it in. Actually by the time I'm ready to go from mc to scooter full time, chances are I won't need anything that big and powerful. Probably a 300 or 400 cc will be plenty.

My Dad turns 84 next month. He's been riding for years and currently rides a Suzuki Burgman 650, although not that often anymore. Before that he rode a Honda 750 Shadow Aero but had to give that up because after his knee replacement surgery he had a hard time getting his leg over the bike to get on and off it. I rode both bikes and the Burgman was way faster, sportier, and more fun than the Shadow. Would I buy a scooter? Not at this time, but if I had to in order to keep riding, I likely would. Never say never...

the Ferret I might not go the 3 wheeler route when I can no longer handle the FJR, but I certainly would have another Maxi scooter. My wife and I both had Yamaha 400 Majesty's and they were great and I have ridden a 500 Yamaha T Max scooter that was very fast...and they now have a 560 T max that should be awesome. Twist and go baby, with comfort, wind protection and storage.

JamesW Another so-called motorcycle I'd never get close to is a three wheeler like a Can Am anything. My neighbor bought a used one a couple weeks ago and it took him two hours just to remove the battery. Thing steers like a very old 10 yard dump. I just don't consider them to be a real motorcycle and a new one (RT) is close to $30K. I'd buy a new R1200RT loaded for less than that and if I couldn't hold it up I'd be done with motorcycles same thing goes for a scooter.

Iím too impatient to put up with the poor reliability and poor warranty options for BMW any more, so the FJR is the next best thing (or the best thing, if you donít want to have to have your bike trailered to the shop periodically.)

Bill, I totally agree. The FJR is as reliable as a wheelbarrow and thatís worth a ton. no pun intended considering other thread. Have you ever considered or ridden a new Multistrada? I know itís chain drive and all the rest of the arguments against Ducati but you may be surprised by the bike. My Ď19 has spoiled me. Not sure exactly where you are but go by Gulf Coast Motorcycles in Ft Myers and take one for a test drive. Jeff Gallo, the owner is a friend and great guy. I would say go to Ducati Pompano/Miami because Omar the owner is also a very good friend but they are so unorganized they would probably send you out with no air in the tires and the electronics turned off. Not trying to get you switched but certainly worth riding one.
