First Real Ride 2015 650 LT

Put about 1800 km on the Versys from London Ontario to Manitoulin Island, the long way around Georgian Bay. For those considering a move from a previous version of the 650 to the 2015 here are my observations with two 9 hour days in the seat.
2015: Didn't skip a beat. Less vibration on both feet, hands, and gps screen.
Raised seat front helped keep the " boys" happier but the addition of an Airhawk didn't add much more comfort for me. Just raised me into turbulent air and wind noise.
Riding position is more comfortable on a long trip than my 08 Versys.
* Note; both bikes have the bars raised 1-1/2 inches.
2008; Still miss the snap of that engine...and the silver components.
This was a trial run for a September tour from London to Nevada and back. As soon as I figure out how to drag a map to a post, I will ask for help on suggested alternate routes.
