How many people have wrecked their versys?
Hunting through the various Versys oriented boards, it seems there are more than a few threads on banged up Versii. Am I just reading the same posts over and over about high-side, low-side, rear-ended a truck, lost it in the rain Versys mangulation... or has there been an unusual number of unlucky versys pilots?
My last ride was a KLR 650, and I often felt like there were too many untimely deaths for experienced KLRistas, and wondered if green was an unlucky color.
BTW.. I now have 175 miles on my 3 day old Versys and I think it's a fine scoot. My Corbin flat KLR650 shaped backside is starting to mold itself to the Versys saddle, although I may need to build the nose up on the seat to keep the 'boys' happy. I have one floppy mirror that I cannot seem to keep in any one position for more than a few miles. I changed the oil last night and swapped out for some Rotella and a Puralator filter from Advanced Auto. I LOVE the motor, and have been a good little motoscooter, keeping her generally around the 4000 rpm mark with only a few transgressions into the higher rev range just to keep my sanity.
Oh yeah, and I've been stopped at Hwy Patrol roadblocks twice in the last 6 weeks and checked for license and insurance... won't be long before they know me by name.
