New Versys, West Texas

Hello all, I recently purchased a new 2011 versys. I couldnt stand not riding since my last bike, a ZX-10R, was stolen. So yeah so far I love the bike.

Going from the ZX-10R to the Versys is a interesting change.

Alpine is a very nice little town, and yep - you're really close to both the Davis Mountains and the Devil's River area. Nice places to play...

Cheers, Jeff

from San Antonio! Good roads in the Alpine area and not too much traffic either. Enjoy!
