It does look great

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Nice! The yellow looks sharp, and more black is always good!

....... now I think you need a new seat, heated grips, maybe a skid plate, don't forget to upgrade the suspension..........

Welcome.

Looks like the UK version of the yellow has all the plastic yellow and a black tank. And silver trim I think.

Maybe I have the years mixed up for them. None the less, the yellow is very nice

A question: Are the 2012 bikes (at least those sold in North America) still made in Japan? Or are they made in Thailand now?

Shouldn't you ask permission before you ask such a personal question?

And really, is it any of your business?

I haven't seen a V colour I don't like yet but I do like this one - very different from most bikes out there.

I suggest you that you do NOT need permission to ask that, however, you shouldn't necessarily expect an answer if he considers it NOYB!
