I just did a couple thousand miles on my '08 Versys on winding back roads in NY, PA, OH and WV last month. More than once I wished for better brakes. I also wished for more horsepower and torque and a more advanced suspension. The Versys isn't a high end sport bike, people, it's a capable and cost-effective all-arounder. Adopting more reasonable expectations may be in order.
FWIW, I have an ST1300 with linked brakes and ABS, and the ST's brakes are absolutely superior, even though it weighs 275 pounds more than the Versys.
