Default Newbie from Saint-Sauveur QC

Hi there. New to this forum yesterday. Got a brand new 2011 Versys 650 last Thursday. Got an excellent deal on this beauty since it was a 2011 (but brand spanking new). I'm looking to make a few mods since it's not perfect (no bikes are anyway). These are the mods I'm looking to do this incoming winter:

- handguards;
- Oxford heated grips;
- rear tire hugger
- engine skid plate;
- taller windscreen;
- bags (maybe. not decided if soft or hardbags);
- Seat Concept.

That should be it for now since my last name ain't Rockefeller... Not yet decided on brand of most these mods. Recomendations welcome.

Francois

My son lives in Ste. Jovite, and once he gets it out of my garage and rides it East next spring, he'll be riding his '79 Yamaha SR500 (VERY cherry!).

St-Jovite is quite near my place. Less than 45 min drive (car drive...). You should influence him in a good way so he gets to replace that good ol' Yam for a nice Versys!!!

Chatmaurice: Isn't that a Francophone feline named Maurice? Seriously though, vous et bienvenue ici. Ma famile vie a St. Raphiel. Enjoy your new ride.

Hi satanic versys. You're right, I used to have a cat named Maurice and that's the first thing that came to my mind when I chose an email address years ago... Well, I don't know where the heck is St-Raphael... Let me check that out... I got it now: Saint-Raphael is on the south shore near Quebec city, just a swim across beautiful Ile d'Orléans. Nice place I guess. Never been there even though I lived in Qc city for 8 years a decade ago. I guess you ride year around. I'm jealous of that for sure. I tried the V yesterday for a quick ride, but got hit by rain and it was 34 degree F outside. I turned around and got her back in the garage. Took time to install the Battery Tender Jr this am. Awaiting the Seat concept, the fromt fenda extenda and the rear tire hugger (all parts in the mail).

Hope you enjoy your ride in the sun!

Went for my last oil change of the season this morning. 2C outside. Love them heated grips. Certainly no more then 3-4 weeks left in the season...

Went to the village yesterday at noon. Cold, minus 2 Celcius. No heated grips. Santa is now aware... The V is now sitting in the garage until Spring. Sucks to be waiting...
