Dealer delivered my new 2008 Versys today
Dealer brought my new 2008 Versys today on a trailer and took away my 1600 Classic. Even gave me money back to boot. He lowered it with Speedys kit and cut off the sidestand and put on the flatfoot. Only charged me $68 for labor which i think was very resonable. It was a balmy 45 and raining here in Iowa and might just melt the snow on the ground. Headed into the 30's is why i didn't ride it home the 40 miles. Rain and freezing. I did however ride it a day ago for a mile or so. Liked the kit a lot. Now flatfooted. Cruiser was nice but just too heavy for me and not my style. I just don't travel anymore and only solo now and my health doesn't dictate that heavy of bike. I missed the Ninja 650 R I had and the handling and engine power. Not the leaned over position is why i like the sit up style and always have. Just didn't think i could ever touch on the Versys. Now to wait for warm weather (no snow) to break it in and add things like handguards. So many bikes and so little time. Wife thinks i better keep this one awhile. Told her i would. I will, i will. Hey i told her it was all you guys fault for talking me into it. thanks, really
