Versys takes fun to another level

I have ridden for 37 years and am currently 55 years old. I have owned
30+ motorcycles. Harleys, BMW's , Triumphs, BSA, Japanese... I currently have a 2005 Goldwing that I enjoy and the 08 Versys. The Versys is the most fun bike that I have ever owned. I really like the twisties and when you keep her between 6000-8000 RPM's this little machine shines. I installed the Givi windshield and had Diamond rework my seat and install the NASA foam so it is wider, slightly lower and allows me to move back a couple of inches. It takes the pressure from the groin area and your not sliding forward. The comfort level increased 10 fold. I was considering the new BMW F800 and I am really glad I found the Versys. I do not believe there is a better bike sold for the money.

Could you elaborate on the NASA foam? It sounds like it would be comfy and sturdy.

The NASA foam is used for the astronauts comfort so I have been told. It is only 1/2 inch thick and is like a memory foam and extremely comfortable. You can call mark or send him an e-mail and he can give you details; just do a search under Diamond seats and you should find the web site. The seat that I have on my Wing is a diamond custom and it is great. I just wished I had the NASA foam inside my Goldwing seat.

Thanks. I found their website http://www.diamondseats.com/index.html. I think I only need about 3/4" added to the front half of the seat padding, but it sounds like it might be worth it to give them a call for their professional opinion.
