Total Noob saying hi from Manila!

Hi there! I just got my first real bike yesterday, a 2017 non-ABS Kawasaki Versys 650 with around 2800 kms on it. The first owner decked it out with all the bells and whistles, and I like what he's done.


My first impression of the bike was WHOA that's huge! I'm 5'6" and I've only ever ridden my tiny 110cc Honda Wave Alpha around Metro Manila. The step up to a 650 was really big.

I've been enjoying her so far, and I hope to get in a lot of miles and memories!

Cheers, all!

MRS

I'm still considering the lowering kit. Might go with a thinner seat maybe. :P

Thank you! I was originally looking for a white 2015 model, but this 2017 fell in my lap and I couldn't resist.

Welcome!!

I have a white 2013 Versys, but the lime green is by far my favorite color.
