Torn no longer....Im in!

Hello to all. You may remember me from my last post, "Torn Between the Versys and the Ninja 1000". Well, Im pleased to announce I am the proud owner of a black 2010 Versys. From my understanding it was one of the last ones in all of the south. Its funny how things go.... I was strongly leaning toward the Ninja at one point, and then decided not only to go with the Versys,
I had a dealer from another state drive to ANOTHER state to pick it up and then yesterday I rode 220 miles IN THE RAIN to get it. Boys, Im in.

I believe you made a good choice. It's more fun to ring the neck of a slower bike than to be so cautious with a big one.

Great choice! I think you'll like it, especially since I hear radar can't see the stealth black.

Thanks to all. Two days have passed and Im pushing 250 miles. This bike kicks ass. It really, really is true what others are saying about this thing...fun.
And Im not even pushing it yet. Im breaking in the motor somewhat easy, although I have let it rip(slightly) a couple of times. Thanks again everyone for the advice. And yeah, if anyone is on the fence about the power or wanting something with more cc's (like I was), forget it--how much do you need ? It IS in fact (as told by others) more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow. Although this bike aint slow. The motor, the upright position and wide handlebars make a perfectly balanced bike. Well, you all know. I love it --thanks.

Oh, and MTS- Im from New Orleans.
