impulse purchase

Was browsing Ebay for a fuel pump for my Versys and came across a Kawasaki Versys branded stainless steel watch on auction. Current high bid was 13 cents, I bid 14 cents and won (there is also $15 shipping and handling charge), still not bad for a stainless steel quartz watch. I see the seller has a few more of these left. I have not received mine yet so these could very well be total crap.

And most of the time, shipping is overcharged to compensate the cost of that crap.

Cool. Must keep perfect time and last forever since it's a Versys watch!

BTW - Fuel pump went south on you? I have'nt heard of that one on the Versys yet.

You could remove the band, put some strong Velcro on the back and attach it to the left side of your V's instrument cluster...logo analog clock.

Yeah, but the buttons you use to adjust it will break and the ticking will eventually make your wrist numb.

I'd rather be riding.

...and don't forget that IF you hold it up and look at reflections on the watch crystal, all you'll see are your shoulders...!

Not if you install the Z1000 crystal.
