My old new Versys utility bike
If I'm going anywhere really I ride my big bike. But I usually have a utility local scoot. Has been an old VStrom 1000. But wife got herself a BMW, so the VStrom is off to be sold and I've got her (well, really has always been my) '09 Versys 650 in plasma blue. One side was rashed up, so it was really cheap. She sort of insisted I keep it as a light and easy to ride machine. So I'm fixing it up (ABS cement layers going in the road rash bit by bit) and getting to know it. Really quite a nice bike. Really fun around here. Will have to go over Cherohala Skyway soon. Truly a fine machine. Believe I need to check the valves and replace plugs and air filter. Check the various fueling adustments. That's all that's left to do, and I do that when the body is ready for paint. Might even get all the blue done in powdercoat (how about Kawasaki Ninja green?) and the silver in black.
Pretty nifty machine - lots lightr than my Guzzi!!
