My wife's opinion of the Versys

My experience of the Versys has been surprisingly good. I never thought I would be on the back of a motorcycle or blogging about it. I am a petite woman of 5 feet with boots on and 97 pds with wet clothes on. I made my husband put a truck on the back before I would even consider getting on the versus. When I went on it for the first time I was hanging on to my husband's waist for dear life hoping to make it home alive to my children. Our hour ride was a bit much for this first timer. The second time I tried holding onto the handles at the back of the bike which made me feel like I was really holding onto something. Today I comfortable with my hands resting on my legs not really holding on unless I felt I needed to. I am now comfortable on the bike for an hour. I can sit comfortable in the back with the sidebags on. I am now looking forward to many more adventures with my husband as long as they are not too long.

Glad to hear it's working well for you. My wife also finds the pillion of the Versys works well, particularly since mounting the trunk. I'm glad she's riding with me again.
