First real ride on the Versys
Bought a 2011 Versys with 3400 miles on her. Needed some TLC to bring it up to snuff. Added signal minder, headlight modulator etc..
Previous ride was a Vulcan 900 which is a great bike, just wanted something different. After riding a cruiser the past 3 years the foot controls on the Versys feel very strange. I have ridden it perhaps 15 miles so far and everything seem fine , no really strange sounds. Only issue is there is a fair clunk going into first gear, but clutch is adjusted properly, need to keep an eye on that.
Tomorrow will be the first real ride on the versys approx 200 miles from N Atlanta, up to the mountains, lots of back roads with twisties etc.. I have been on these roads numerous times with the vulcan so the roads will be familiar. Forecast looks good with temps in the high70s low 80s. I will take it easy being my first time out on a new to me bike with a very different feel to it.
I bought the versys on a bit of a whim so I am really hoping I don't regret it! Did come with a Corbin seat!
I will post back with my impressions after my ride.
Wish me luck!
