Versys for me?
Greetings. I lurk here quite a bit, but don't post much.
I'm a re-entry rider currently on an '05 Vulcan 750. It's been a good re-entry bike, but I'd like something a little newer and more capable. I ride solo only, but I'm 5'11" and 275. I can't force myself to get interested in cruisers much and I'm also not particularly interested in sport bikes...I like standard motorcycles, including Versys, V-Strom, Bandit and the like...
I have checked out the Versys. For some reason, they don't seem to be selling very well around here (Sacramento, CA) and there are a bunch in the showrooms. I don't get it, because it's a very nice motorcycle . Its capabilities are pretty apparent, from my reading on this website...mutliday, multistate, multiroad excursions with essentially no problems. Also, it seems to fit me better than the V-Strom.
My only concern is this: Is this bike going to be able to lug my large self around, or are my expectations unrealistic? I'm sure this question is asked fairly frequently, so I apologize if this is redundant, but any input you can provide will be most appreciated. Thanks for all replies.
