Bike is SOLD!
So - I sold my bike.
I enjoyed the Versys, and some of that enjoyment was a direct result of learning things on this forum. Some great information posted by some very smart posters - thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work.
My 2011 Versys was dead-reliable, never had a single issue with it.
I move on now, to different 2-wheeled chariots. For some reason, I'm looking for a '70's era air-cooled 4 to restore and enjoy. I guess I found my reliable, low maintenance, good handling modern bike so incredibly without drama (and outside of my former experience of the temperamental, carburetted, slow, evil-handling bikes of my 'youth"), that I nostalgically (and most likely ill-advisedly) yearn for the Bad Old Days of grease under my fingernails and oil-stained concrete to return to my garage...
Thanks for everything, and enjoy your bikes.
