I just took er out for a long morning ride in the twisties. So much more fun than the daily commute! I have to say that I am sooo happy with this bike! I enjoy the long suspension on the questionable roads up in the hills (our tax dollars hard at work!). I was riding a GT650R Hyosung for 8 months, but it would get a bit crazy in hard bumpy corners with that short suspension. I have to admit, I am accustomed to long suspension as I put 70K on an 08 KLR before that. I LOVED that KLR, but...the Versys is just sooo much more refined, and don't get me going on the KLR breaks!
I do miss going off road with the KLR so I was thinking about getting another and setting it up just for offroad adventure, but now I wish I could get another Versys and just convert it to off road/adventure riding. Skid plate, crash bars, fender work, ect... I have seen older Versys converted quite radically, but not any 2015s.
