New Rider Here!

Hello, I just picked up a 2009 Versys with 7400 miles for a good price. This is my first motorcycle. I look forward to finding a ton of good information here!

Welcome. You've come to the right place. Lots of experience here and, most likely, you'll find the answer to almost anything Versys you can think of. Oh yes, the answer to the most important question of all time is - 42!

I have a candy lime 09 as well, definitely the best color.

Back in the day, 50s and early 60s, black or red were about the only colors available on motorcycles. Honda came out with white cb 300 dream. I didn't like white bikes at all. When I bought my versys I was looking for lime green. By far my favorite Versys color. Found a 2013 at a good price. Wouldn't you know it. It was white. But wait a minute, this bike was beautiful. I think Kawasaki calls it moon dust or star dust. I have gotten plenty of comment from people about how much they like the color. Who would have ever thought I would like a white bike. That said, I still like the lime green the best.

Have to agree, after putting lots of miles on the GREEN HORNET ('09) and the GREEN HORNET TOO ('15).

I know it's lame but I don't have any pics yet. Here's a dealer pic. It has a lowering block which will have to come off -- I'm 6"5"
