That is the beauty of the removable side cases. The rack is universal...so, if I change bikes...take it all with me. While I will agree that the 650 is not always happy where I ride it (70-80mph on interstates), it has always gotten me from point a to point b...touring can be done on almost any bike. I've done 700 mile days on my 07 Ninja 250. Minus sore knees...my knees are bad....I had a ball.Hardbags, fairings and tourpaks on a 650 is a waste.
The bike is not made for touring and if you are going to spend money, save it, sell or trade in your 650 and get an actual touring bike with the accessories already on the bike.
