Yes, the Versys is one heck of an ice breaker. I'm still waiting for that super hot, single, crotch rocket riding millionaire super model to approach me and ask if she can ride it . . . . . . . . and my bike too.

No Super models yet but I do get stares and waves from hot young girls while I'm riding. Then I take of my helmet, they see the gray hair (threads of wisdom) and they don't wave anymore. What's up with that?

Ah to be 20 again.

That's why I cheat and use Just for Men hair color to hide the gray. To be 20 again? Heck, I'd be happy with 30 or even 40 again. I'm only a year away from the big Five-Oh but be honest and tell me if I look it in this photo. This was taken a couple of months ago so there is more gray than usual.

Two very young good looking girls riding in sports bike followed me into a store parking lot. When I came out of the store about 10 minutes later. I found them standing by my V looking at it and talking to each other. I started to feel really good until I realize they were not interested in a rider almost old enough to be their father, their interest was just on the ride.
