Talking Two Week Ride Report

Hey everyone, Well I've had my new Versys for over two weeks now and I must say I am quite pleased. My last three bikes have been Hinkley Triumphs and I do miss the power of the triple, but the 650 sweet has it's own sweet sound! Anyway, I just performed my second oil change at 1500 miles and went to full synthetic Shell Rottela 5-40 and the bike seems to like it. My clutch has smoothed out for the most part, and the clutch is not so grabby anymore. I am very impressed with the power this bike has and I have no problem keeping up with my liter bike buddies (and getting over 50mpg to boot!) The ride is a little harsh, but I haven't tweeked the suspension settings yet. Anyway, I am very pleased and I am glad I didn't spend the 10k on the 1050 Tiger and spent 6 and change for the Versys. I still love Triumph and I see an older 94-96 Daytona in my future as a play bike....
