What did you do on your Versys today?

Me, I just got back from a 500 mile 2 day round trip thru the Great Smokey Mountains. Went to Cherokee, Cades Cove, Townsend, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The bike did great. I now have 1100 miles. It got up to a balmy 75 degrees both Saturday and today!!!

My new Shinko 705 rear has a great bite and good road manners. So far I am impressed. Still running stock front. I did the weatherstripping/foam thing to fairing, stopped buzz for 1/2 the trip, now its coming back. Gotta tear it back down and find what I missed.....

Went for a 250km ride with a buddy also on Versys.
From the city to the cost then back up into mountains. Bit of light traffic, speed -track type of roads and a bit of poor asphalt/off road. Very fun day.

Here are some pictures:

Squeezed in a later afternoon, 60 mile run along some of my favorite winding roads in my neck of the woods. Bonus day for late fall...loved it.

About 150 miles from Scottsdale AZ, to Apache Junction and around the Superstition Mountain area.
