Made 1,000!

I know many have done this within days of riding off the lot but, I got 1K miles on my Versys in 23 days. Probably would have more if it wasn't for my CTX that still gets my attention!

I really like this Versys. It handles very well and rides extremely smooth.

How do you like the gear indicator? Is it responsive when you shift or is there a lag?

I have noticed a split-second lag but to be honest, I've gotten so used to not having one that I generally don't even look at it. I already have a good feel for what gear I'm in, albeit it took a few days to get used to the higher revving. When I jump on my CTX it's a big difference.

Gear indicator... when you clutch in and change the gear will it show the gear you just switched in? Or you need to release the clutch first to see what gear you switched in?

Just interested how they wired it... I like new digital part of the dash though.

As soon as you kick the shifter up or down the indicator will show what gear, regardless of whether you have the clutch handle pulled in or not. But like said, there "can be" a split-second lag.
I'm in the cage today but I can really inspect tomorrow when I take her out and about.
