Oh man, the resident old guy's checking in - 68 years on my shoulders at the moment. My two wheel experience began with a Cushman Super Eagle waaay back in the day.
Since then the fleet has included one H-D, three Suzukis, two Nortons, a Moto Guzzi, two BMWs, one Yamaha, and three Kawasakis. Don't remember ever owning a Honda but it's early in the day and my mind hasn't spooled up to full operating speed just yet. More coffee!
Except for the Cushman and the 750 flathead Harley (both of which could be politely described as "lacking"), each one was a favorite for one good reason or another. However, as my youthful indiscretions race to catch up with me, I appreciate and enjoy the upright riding position of the Versys more than the monkey-humping-a-football (no offense intended to either monkeys or footballs) position of super sports, or the C-shaped sail-in-the-wind position of cruisers.
IMHO, the Versys, although it seems not many have discovered it yet, is a versatile (clever idea for a name, huh?), capable, comfortable, sensibly priced, and reasonably good looking machine. It's also a great platform for personalizing - let the farkling begin! Sorry, that's let the farkling continue.
