Big Day Yesterday. Hit 50,000 miles on the V!

Yesterday was the day! Bought my '09 Green new on 03/13/10, and after almost 5 years of ownership, I hit the 50K mark on my ride to the office. Have nothing but great things to say about this bike.

Like many others here, I was bitten by a bad stator 2 years ago, and there are the rattles here and there, but in the end, the V makes me smile every time I throw a leg over it. It is my daily commuter, weekend fun-chaser, and RV a couple of times each year when I get to take a tour. Absolutely love this thing. Here's to another 50K!

Nice! Speaks volumes for the Versys platform. I still have yet to hear any real negative things from anyone about our bikes. Congrats on 50,000!

Bought my 11 on 2/12/11... so 4 years old today
44k miles on it with no problems, and I'm not the kind to pamper my bikes.

Congratulations! Hey, I thought Clovis was in New Mexico. Did it move while I wasn't looking?

Thanks! We are the "other" Clovis. Right next to Fresno - Fresno, CA not Fresno, TX. :-)

Kudo's! I've got a long time to go to catch with you, but really feel I made the right decision to pick up my V to start a new adventure a couple of years ago.

Congrats on the long dependable service you have been able to get out of your V! I just went over 3000 miles on my 14 that I purchased in late August, I have a ways to go to catch up with you!

Looks like you may catch up to me on my 2011. 54k miles and climbing slowly as I've been commuting mostly on my other bike. I still love riding the Versys a lot, it's just not the best tool for the job at the moment. It may get replaced this year and a 2015 Versys is one of the candidates.
