Nice review, thanks for sharing. Just what I needed to read as I gaze out the window at the massive piles of snow.

I just got my V last year and am digging it! It's fun, handles like a sportbike in the twisties, and comfy for touring. Coming off of sportbikes, it still satisfies my need for something that handles curves well!

Can't wait for spring!

Wish I had more time for long rides or trips, but the ones I have had.....what a blast!

Really have enjoyed the V.

Is it the best? Not best made but maybe for the money?

Also high fun factor.

Even though they do talk about the changes to the 2014 model, they are actually testing a 2013 model.

That was my thought, as other than the windshield, that's my ride. Kinda cool seeing your bike in a article, same color and bags.

Good find, Bones, thanks for posting!
I remember Gabe wrote a nice Versys piece, I think it was in Motorcyclist, before the MOTY Issue came out. Glad to see he's still smitten.

That's what I said.

"I can say with certainty that while itís not the best motorcycle Iíve ever owned, itís the best motorcycling bargain Iíve ever scored."

Whitehorse Press is going out of business so it's time for a final sale. Signed copies of my book are now $10 with free shipping in the U.S. while they last.
