UPz for Versys-MyRed.

Upz for Versys

5 Versys were among the 11 bikes that have made it to the gruelling 18,000KM Kuala Lumpur to Saudi Arabia early this month. Two of those made it all the way without the need of support truck (coincidently both were green in colour ) while two more do piggy bag on the truck due to accident and one fails due engine oil was running low during the last 900KM towards the end of the expedition (owner's carelessness). The rest of the bikes were BMW (even two of the BMW need the truck's help as well ) and one Africa Twin (me).

So in short, the bike (Versys) is a very reliable bike.

That's an epic journey. A credit to the riders and their machines. Proud to be represented by the Versys being in the finishers.
Good job!
