Well, nice to know y'all. Seriously though, much appreciation to the people on the versus forum. I've only been on here for about a week or so, but I appreciate the interactions I had in that short time.
Someone pulled an illegal U-turn in front of my wife and I last thursday and totaled my (brand new to me) 2009 Versys. The 2nd and 3rd degree burns have pretty much dictated that the rest of this riding season is a total loss (very limited mobility in my feet for shifting and braking).
I hope to find another versus for sale in the near future. Riding the beast was literally the most fun 10 days of my life....
Be safe everyone... helmets, jackets, pants, ATGATT... We were less than 1/2 mile from the front door of our apartment when the accident took place.
