New V

I can Finally say I'm part the Versys club. Got my brand new 2011 model. So far I'm very pleased with the ride, just need to get it broke in.

Enjoy your new ride!
Just picked up mine on Friday last week (2012 yellow black) and I'm happy to say I've already put 810 kms on it. It's been really frustrating keeping it under 4k RPM to 800 kms, but now I can go up to 6K

You are very fortunate. You bought the fastest Model/Year/Paint combo made!

and not only did you pick the fastest year/color combo- you also picked the BEST. Trust me.

Thanks guys, It took me awhile to find the the right deal. And rorider is right it is difficult to keep it under 4000 rpm for the first 500 miles. I just got it to 54 miles. I know not a lot but I'm working on it. I did just change the oil and filter. Thanks to this sight, thought it might be a little early to change it but thought it couldn't hurt, wow was there a lot of trash in the oil. Did find an intersting mark on the back of the case looks like a engine builders date and initials.

(At least) Two schools of thought here . . .

1. Immediately start buying accessories!!!!!!!!
2. Just ride it!!!!!!!

Either way . . . you're gonna have fun. Ride safe, enjoy, repeat . . .
