am I crazy?
Just got a new Versys last week, so far so good. I've been riding a ex-500R, so its a big change position and feel wise, but I'm loving the power and control gained.
My inseam is just over 32", relatively short legs for my height at 6"3, but my initial feedback from the week is that I want the bike lowered. Am I nuts? Maybe this is just because I'm used to the 500, but even though I can rest both feet flat standing, it feels to high to get any control with a foot down - how do you shorter guys back up on an incline?
Only other complaint is since my upper body is so long, the handlebars seem to high, I'm getting cramped in there, hands come off feeling like I'm on the verge of loosing circulation - but not quite, might have to lower them as well saw a few good threads on those options in here.
So should I just give it some more time to get used to it? Ergos aside, bike is great, and I'm looking forward to this summer now.
Anyways, great to see such a strong community here, glad to be a part of it.
