Here's mine after some pretty serious offloading this past Sunday up in the hills next to the border with Mexico. Tool the pressure in the new Distanzas down to 20psi....that made it very manageable. The Versys did very well on the trails we were doing, which consisted of a drop off on one side and 6"-8" ruts on the other, with the entire trail being about 6' wide for about 20 miles. Super fun.

Oh. My "meh" was only a general comment on this 22 page "Hey-look-at-mine!" thread. I am amazed, perplexed and apathetic toward this phenomenon.

It's ok though. It just is.

Personally I like showing what I have custom made and seeing others gives me some good ideas. This is what this site is about....sharing ideas. It is not ego, just a community of like minded souls.

dsmisfits, if i lived in a warm weather state i'd mount my shield like you did !!! that look really puts the sport in sport touring !!! very nice !!! i painted mine flat black on the inside and have it upside down in the middle position for summer and right side up top position for fall riding. yours just looks right !!! you should try a small bar end mirror to complete that sleek look you've got going there !!!

Funny you should mention bar end mirrors, they just came in today. I also finished my fender eliminator kit and purchased black exhaust covers which everything will be on the bike by the end of the day. I will take more pics either today or tomorrow.

This is a link to the youtube video of the exhaust note from my 09 versys. Danmoto with no baffle.

I think this thread is just a fun way of saying "look at mine." It sounds like each person has treated it as such, and is being respectful as they show off their ride. A little good-natured pride time. Just sayin...

Here is my V.



She has a large ass...


A look at the dash. You can see the heated grips, GPS, gear indicator, and garage door opener.
