Obliging with my two intro posts

G'day from Tasmania, Australia.

Picked up my brand new (all black) Versys 650 on Friday and have enjoyed getting used to it. Obviously, I am still running the motor in, so haven't ridden it hard yet (not that I intend to).

Love the low down torque, as I am a big guy. Intend to add some crash bars and a gear indicator at some stage. Will post some pics (if anyone's interested) once I am an unrestricted member of this fine forum.

Rubber down, shiny up.

Welcome. I was down in Tassie on holidays last year and many times I wished I was on my bike instead of in the hire car
