So, I'm considering a versys. What's he scheduled maintenence like? I know about keeping the chain waxed and regular oil changes. What about valve adjustments? How long are the tires lasting? Anyone know the reason the plugs need to be changed so often? Anything else I haven't thpought of? I've owned bikes for years, some more maintenence intensive than others. I'd rather ride than wrench. Mods and farkles are a different matter.
If all you can see in your mirrors is the direction you were previously traveling intermingled with sparks, and all you can hear is commotion from the passenger riding pillion; things are not at all as they should be.
The rear wheel is just a big fan used to keep the Rider cool and his butt relaxed. If in doubt... watch. When it locks up or slides out you can actually see the rider start sweating and pucker marks are left on the seat.
