Versys spotted. Cairo, Egypt

Watching the news today. During a clip of the rioting (the one where a man in a blue shirt and black slacks throws a tear gas grenade back at the police while a group of six men pull another man in every direction at the same time while beating him with shoes) low and behold in the background is a silver Versys. Not sure of the year. If you see this, what brand of top box did you use? Looks sharp!

Forget about all the top case, someone should tell him he needs a fast orange one to get away from all the troubles.

Egypt!

Just think if we were stuck with the same president for 30 years! I think we would be rioting in the streets as well. I do not think we would be looking toward the Muslim Brotherhood for guidance but you never know. That day may come. As the women say behind the berka"Allahlahlhalhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Do you mean Carter the 2nd or twice as bad as Carter?
Whatever your perspective, we're all distracted with life and can't see the forest for the trees. Why is it that it seems like the politicians are more hindrance than help and in some cases outright hell-bent on tearing down society?

Both sides of the isle better get their heads out of their a$$e$. As far as freedom? No presidency did more to take away our rights than did GW Bush so watch it if you decide to protest. But he was a redneck so I guess many people were happy with that. At least under Carter we had NO war.

I think someone should record a cover of The Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian," except this one would be called "Ride Like an Egyptian" and the video would feature a dude doing wheelies on an orange Versys, while he does that "walk like an Egyptian" hand move. When he stops the Versys, he pulls gas masks out of his topcase and gives them to protesters. Then a tank comes his way, and he zooms the Versys straight toward it, and he pops a wheelie when he gets to the tank, and he rides the bike up to the top of the tank and stops it there, on a dime. Then takes a leak down the hatch, just as an indignant Egyptian soldier pops his head out. Then the Egyptian soldier grins when he sees the Versys. Last thing you see: Orange Versys riding into the sunset, with the soldier riding pillion, and gas masks bouncing out of the open topcase.

Either that or a dude on a Versys, swinging away at riot cops with a machete.

OK Moto, I've been outed. Pardon me for having a sense of humor. I actually thought I saw a white Honda Helix but on review saw it was a motorcycle with a side-car, then an idea settled in and I wanted to see if i could generate a few laughs. I am also a member of the ZRXOA so I tweaked it to spec for that site. How did you find it? I had an 02 ZRX1200R.

blipco, thought it was funny to, in a world full of troubles it is great to still have a sense of humour A merry heart does good like a medicine and science has proven that is a true principle.

Stumbled across it by pure chance. I only visit ZRXOA rarely (but still, this is evidence I spend too much time on motorcycle forums).

It sounded fishy when I first saw it. I've spent a little time in Third World countries were people earn a few dollars a day on average, and I've never seen anyone ride a US$7000 motorcycle to a protest.
