There I was last weekend sitting around in the dealer waiting for my V's first annual service to be carried out, when I picked up January's issue of Bike magazine. In it, amongst the other stuff, were two separate articles which included the Versys. One was something like "the best bike to do 500 miles in a day on" and the other was the best allrounders. Well, the V scored high in both - gives you a warm feeling, dunnit...?
Yep. The V really is all that is touted to be. Every now and then I started lusting for a C14 or Ninja 1000, but then I think about how well the V meets my needs right now. Right now I need a great commuter, weekend tourer, and canyon carver, and I have that with the V. Some day I will add another bike, but it will have some big shoes to fill.
