ready to take the plunge on the back V!

Hi people,

Just to let you know I am ready to take the plunge for a new 2010 versys black. Like the yellow too, but yellow does not leave too much room for personalization.

Some credit operations laws are pretty nonsense down here. If you sign a credit contract for anything above 3k euros the financing company will only deliver the bike to you 15 days after signing. This is because if you get it prior to 15 days you can still void the contract and give back the bike.. but the companies donīt trust people giving it back!

The drawback hard times we live right now this is too stupid. Operations stop and no flow is running, not good for anyone or the economics.

But.. we have the sun and summer heat! lol

So I can only give some impressions and feedback in 15 days.

greetings

Welcome aboard, and good luck on your purchase. That whole credit thing sounds lame, I wouldn't want to have to wait 15 days either. Heres hoping things go your way cheers and enjoy.

thanks kiwi!

as said itīs neither me nor the credit company avoiding me having it.. itīs that nonsense law.

I also have a honda civic vti (160bhp) which is also a devilish piece of engineering, no mods just factory stuff, 7.5 secs 0-60 mps, 150 mph top, but somehow feel the veevee will be faster on the quarter mile! lol



be well!

I am toying with the idea of having my 2010 repainted yellow. The parts are fairly easy to remove, and I have a great painter I use. Probably cost about $750.

Interesting. Care to share your painter? I love the yellow, but I already have yellow in my garage. Orange ... now that I don't have.
