Finally got a V!

Picked up an 08 Versys on Monday for $4200! Has 1,360 miles and a Two Bros exhaust on it. Flew up from FL to VA to get it and rode the Blue Ridge Parkway from Roanoke VA to Asheville NC, then jumped on I-26 to I-95. Excellent ride. The Versys is great.

First day back in FL and I already started farkling. Added a Blue Sea 5025 fuse box, power outlet and hardwired my Garmin 765T GPS w/ Speedy mount.

On the BRP:

LOL!! that's the one that the guy drove up and down the driveway. I was really considering that one. From the looks of it, probably should have! How is it turning out? Be sure to change that oil ASAP by the way

Congratulations

yup, Bill is a good guy and easy to work with. He picked me up from the airport and we went to his bank to work everything out. I only found the craigslist ad because you made a thread about it, lol. The bike is great. I had the oil changed and chain lubed/adjusted in Roanoke @ Star City Powersports before I rode down.

You get the Givi E21's on yet? I'm going to order some more farkles tonight and they're on the list.

Also the Two Bro's exhaust is a lot louder than I expected. Think I might pickup a stock exhaust or maybe a different style/brand.

I'm sure you could list the two brothers exhaust and get a trade for the stock and a little cash. I do a lot of long distance and the stock is great! So quiet.

Yes! I'm Mark, I miss the V! I sold it mostly because I had too many bikes, and needed cash! I currently have an 08 Harley Fatbob, and an 07 Triumph Speedmaster, but might be in the market this summer for another V................

It's a Small world.

Did you have the 600 mile service done to it? The V is great! Thanks!
