Thanks and Farewell! Sold my Versys

I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone on this forum for all the advice. Youve make my experience so much better. Special thanks to Speedy for the quality parts. I traded her in on a new 2009 yamaha FZ6. I put 7000 miles on my Versys this summer and she was virtually trouble free. I wish you all many more happy miles. Rick

I owned an '05 FZ6 and really liked that bike. So with this being the last time i can buy a new FZ6 (discontinued) with its 92ish hp, great build quality, extra guages, aluminum frame, centerstand, higher spec brakes, and this one is highly subjective, great FZ6 looks, well I just had to have one again. My V did have several niggles and my FZ not a one. Please do not misunderstand I am not dissin the V, I had a blast on it, just for me the FZ makes more sense. I'll be visiting from time to time as well.

I have yet to taste the power of an inline 4..... the Versys is my first bike in the US. I did look at the FZ6 specs today....31.1 inch seat height vs. 33.1.....that alone would be a deal breaker for me unfortunately....I added Speedy's footpeg height reducer to get comfortable on my Versys.... FZ6 out of question.... 92 HP sounds mighty nice though

Good luck with the FZ; I hear they are great bikes. I'm kicking around the idea of trading the V off in the spring too; not that it's done anything wrong, I just can't get the Ducati S4RS Monster out of my mind..........

Why the qualification of "virtually"? (Just curious)

Those Fizzers always looked like fun to me. Just never got the itch to get one. :shrug:
