Happy Birthday Versys!!! :D:D:D:D:D

Happy Birthday Versys... Bought her exactly one year ago... On 4th set of tires, bunch of oil changes... Over 15,000 of trouble free miles... Going to put a lot more miles since now that I started working...
Love this bike...

@LA,
That is no small feat, I did 12K my first, maybe last year. I love the Mulholland Drive pics you put up. Instead of Happy Birthday Song, how bout "I LOVE L.A."?

FOUR sets of tires? Really?!? I thought the Versys would be relatively easy on tires.

@Ninjai
I have gone thru 2 rear, 1 front, 12,500 miles. L.A., warmer, more stop in go, and again, Mulholland Drive? Right?

OEM tires lasted about 4500 miles, BT003rs lasted about $3500, contimotion lasted about 5000 miles. Current Pilot Road 2 already got about 2000 miles on it, still looks like new, I hope it will last!!! Oh, I am the kind that rather change tires the minutes wear indicator is reached... Probably can go another 500 miles or so more on OEM, BT003rs and Contimotion... Always a long ride coming up and I hate to run out of tires...

I started working and commute with Versys... Will be putting over 2000 miles each month... Lots of fun coming up...

I think my Versys Preferred "Good Vibration" song... I don't think she like it when we talk about her age...
