i'm in the mean green machine club - 09!

Well I've been rude and not officially announced that I got a great deal on my 2009 Green Versys, now I'm not sure how fast this green is but I can tell you it's certainly amazing and really grows on you, at first I really wanted the 2010 in black but decided the green was acceptable and I've really grown to love it.

First things bought were the Kawi Side racks with Givi V35's and liner bags and a Givi windscreen.

On the short list are -

Two Brothers Racing Exhaust
Bark Busters Storm Hand Guards
SW Motech Engine Guards
Rear Hugger Ermax (if they fixed the fitment issues)

Mid list -

GPS mount
Power Commander
Black Exhaust Covers
Fork Sliders

And without further ado, here's my 09 Versys sitting in front of my 09 Tacoma, guess I picked the right year!

I'd also like to say that I'm on a few forums for my various toys and hobbies and this has been by far the most helpful and informative forum out there. I especially enjoy the International flair.

I have yet to get the standard "What? Don't you know how to search?" when I ask a question.

I hope to add equally in my own regard. I also hope to meet more Pacific Northwest folks soon too!

Thanks again folks, you are all rock stars

Rob

Welcome, and yes, green is the fastest. The blue guys are just trying to kiss up as they try to CATCH up , (Fastoman is the exception, they mistakenly put blue plastics on a green bike)

Brrr, and NWS says no hope for warmer weather for you this next week. Has it been cold enough to thicken the blood up there yet this year? You're my hero, I won't go out if it's less than 55 or so.

75 and sunny here in CO today and tomorrow, kind of chilly, don't know if I'll ride today.....sorry, couldn't help it

I hear ya Bear +1 on bein' comfortable + the good ol U.S of A. is a very big place to tour let alone Texas. Been to Houston and Corpus Christi myself back in the day, no bike though, toured around with some friends that lived there(she is a nurse)....traffic and rules of the road are different than up here, a little scary, really, merging and such! We liked Padre island and the area a lot....mmmmm shrimp!

Big V, no studs for me, got some leftover ailments from my younger years of rideing in the cold, never thought of heating then. Most of my spare cash went for other things and stuff! then along came the and a child then all of a sudden no more of this stuff....until the Versys that is!

Glad you're back!

About 30 (40??) years ago, I studded the tires on my 250 trials machine and ran it on ice. It was a blast, but like you I can't tolerate the cold like I used to.
