How many Versus have you bought?

I got to thinking last night after talking to my two sons about the number of Versys I have bought and I think I hold the record. So far, I have bought four (4). Yes, I bought all of them and gave my sons one each of the Green ones. I sold the Red one in a fit of stupidity so now I'm down to one. Oh well, I can only ride one at a time. Pictures are in the same order.

Breakdown is as follows.

2 ea '08 & '09 . Don Sr. (1- Red 08 & 1 Green 09) Dallas, TX

1 ea '09 Don Jr. (Green one) Kansas City, KS

1 ea '09 Jim (other son) (Green one) Pflugerville, TX.

Question is: Has anyone bought more than I have?

No, but can I be your son? I'd like a Black '10, thanks.

No sir not me. I have got only ONE Blue one.

Not only do you hold the record of been the person who owns most number of Versys, but also the father who bought the most number of versys.

You sir, must be a very good father.
God bless you.

Well I'm trying to make up for all the beatings I gave them when they were growing up. Actually I'm quite proud of my sons as they are living their own life and aren't living at home with me.

We were stones in the quarry. When Christ saved
us—we were cut from the great mass of rock. But
we were yet rough and unshapely; not fit for heaven.
Before we can be ready for our place in the heavenly
temple—we must be hewn and shaped. The hammer
must do its work—breaking off the roughnesses. The
chisel must be used—carving and polishing our lives
into beauty. This work is done in the many processes
of life. Every sinful thing, every fault in our character
—is a rough place in the stone, which must be chiseled
off. All the crooked lines must be straightened. Our
lives must be cut and hewn—until they conform to
the perfect standard of divine truth.

Your beating made them to be what they are today, so you deserve to be proud of it and your sons.

You are definitely a record holder, Don.
I knew about red and current green but 4 of them is a serious dedication to this bike.


I'm toying with the idea of having 'a fit of stupidity' myself. I would get a really inappropriate bike for me and after realizing it return to Versys.



Cheers.

I would venture a guess that you are the world record holder. I have owned several of one model of bike but that model spans over 20 years. The Versys has only been out for a few.

My kids were like boomerangs for a while....kept coming back. Now they bring the grandkids over. They love to sit on grandpa's bike. We spoil them as much as possible as payback.
