Good Googly Goo, this guy can ride!

This may be old news to most of you.

I don't know who the rider is, but he was embarrassing the R boys in the twisties. In spite of losing ground in the straights, he was right back on them like hair on a gorilla everywhere else.

Apparently, we aren't riding sissy commuters after all.

Oh yea, this is a classic Versys video.

My buddy this weekend said "I don't understand why you wouldn't just get a cruiser for touring" ... this video is the reason.

Touring isn't supposed to be puttin' along down a straight road for days...

2008 Versys 650

Been riding 8 or 9 years, and have owned 8 or 9 bikes; its an addiction I can't quit...
