Saying goodbye to the Versys

Well guys I hate to say it , but i traded the Versys tonight for New 2007 Victory Hammer. I'm going to miss all the great threads on here and all the knowledge I've learned the past couple of years from you guys. Invader alone seems to know this bike inside out!! Thanks Invader!
I do have a large sales poster of the Versys in red with the MOTY on it. To be fair the first contact can have it for the cost of shipping and the tube.
Thanks again guys, I don't regret having the Versys, it was great and always reliable....but a recent trip with plans on more brought me to the decision of something heavier and more relaxed for the long haul. This Victory fits perfect! Great bike, plenty of power and handles well even with the character handling of a fat 250 tire!
Thanks again!

Thanks all for the positive feedback!
Poster is spoken for by first contact I got shortly after posting.
I will have a red Kawasaki Jacket I will be selling. I will get pics of it on the for sale section after this weekend.

As far as cruisers go the victory's are nice looking bikes, I like it except for the chrome.


Those who say money can't buy happines haven't bought A VERSYS.
