Back in the saddle

Hi everyone. Just bought a Kawasaki Versys 1000 (pre face-lift model 2013-2014ish) at my local dealer. Only 3700km so lightly used but only been ridden in 2016.
I've previously ridden Honda 750 Ace and a Honda CBF 600 SA. Had a couple years off the saddle but it's tough not to own a bike. Can't wait to get it.
Im waiting for all the accessories to arrive and of course a day without snow and ice to bring my baby home.

Welcome from across the pond in Alaska. What part of Denmark? I visited your fine country back in the 80's when I was in the military. I've ALWAYS wanted to go back.

Thank you all.

@alaskajeff
I'm from the northern part of Denmark (Jutland). In the 80's we had a lot of Americans visit my hometown. I think they were stationed in Germany and did exercises in the nearby forests. Had a lot of fun talking with some of your guys to practice my English - often at the public swimming pool. Good times.

Kawasaki Versys owner from Denmark - Post nr. 2

Hi all

Name's Jakob and I have just bought my Kawasaki Versys 1000 from a local dealer. Got it at a steal because Kawasaki sold the previous models (2013) at a lower price. It was first registered in 2016 and is basically brand new (4000km). It runs like a dream and I'm real happy with it. I love the height and I sit fairly comfortable.

Previous bikes is a Honda VT750 ACE and a Honda CBF 600. I have to get a little used to the funfactor of having a 1000cc bike. It's so much fun, it's freaky.

I primarily use the bike as a commuter but hope to get on a short trip this summer all by "me onecies" (to quote Jack Sparrow).

Welcome from the big hat state "Texas". Show us a picture of that new bike. I was wondering what the first year was for the 1000V. Probably different for overseas versus US.
