Talking Hello from GA USA

Hello! I am a new rider and just bought a 2008 Kawasaki Versys 650 from its original owner. It had 16,780 miles when I brought it home. This bike was so lovingly cared for and maintained, it is in perfect condition both mechanically and cosmetically. I originally wanted a straight sport bike like a CBRR or GSXR. I love the lines...like a sleek race horse. My Versys reminds me more of a mule than a race horse so I named it "Old Number 7" after the mule on the old Grizzly Adams show.

After riding a few miles, I am blown away with this bike! It is amazing and fits me perfectly. If I was asking someone to build me a bike exactly to my liking - this would be it. It reminds me of a comfortable version of my old dirt bike. The speed is manageable yet exhilarating. I can't stop smiling.

I live in Georgia about an hour south or so of the Dragon, so I am anticipating a fun filled summer of curves. I plan to ride as far south as I can in Florida, then turn around and head as far north as I can In Michigan. If all goes right a trip from Savanah GA to the Oregon coast will happen this summer as well.

I would appreciate all advice and tips you could give concerning riding and maintaining or upgrading my Versys. Looking forward to making new friends here.
