Sold the Versys this weekend :(

I finally sold the Versys last weekend. I can at least say one thing and that is don't consider a Versys based on retaining value. I lost my ass on this bike. That being said we had 10,000 great trouble free mile together. She was my first bike and just like my first love I will not forget our time together. She served me well. I still absolutely love the power delivery of this bike and long for it in more off-road oriented form. I hoped that this dream bike would replace the KLR 650 but it did not. And surely if it does in the future it will (like the KLR and the Versys 650 current form) be a heavy pig. Oh well. I long for a Versys now and will probably forever but 3 bikes were too many. I want to thank all the forum members for the their wisdom and some laughs. I will still creep around hear from time to time. Here are pictures of her and her replacement.

Have a look at this ADV Rider thread on making a KLRsys (KLR/Versys build). MIGHT be a solution for you....
