Terrific link!

It looks like Kawasaki has been listening to the riders - I really like the changes that they've made in the Vee, but they're keeping the good stuff. I wonder about the seat - they mentioned changes to the pillion, but what about the primary saddle?
I've always like the looks of the Vee, but the new front end is killer. They're offering a lot of the things as options that we've been putting on the bikes ourselves so far - heated grips, etc.
Thanks for the link.

Don't you think that it's a ^%#$&# shame that Hunter S. Thompson wasn't an adventure rider? Imagine the ride reports...!

Just click on the little white/red triangle next to the reply number and the admin will be notified. They take care of it very quickly!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Sounds like a challenge to me!

Now I have four!

We get them as soon as we're notified & are able to do so. We permanently ban these guys, but they're pretty shifty, & never stop trying. I ask that you have a little patience. We have lives outside this forum, so it may take a little while for one of us to see the alert, but we'll get him.

And by the way, there are only two active moderators & one administrator for this site. If any of you guys want to put on the reflective vest, shoulder harness & badge, by all means, send one of us a PM...

Guys, I'm not in any way associated with the site. I'm about to buy my very first street bike (Versys 2010) (had 2 previous enduro bikes) and I'm very enthusiastic. Never really thought posting a link was spam. E-nigma, If it bother you so much, then my apologies... I’ve always read you posts and though of them as very insightful so I will take you word…

PS There is also a new video (not the Kawasaki promo) on YouTube. No link this time but I’m sure that if you search for Verys 2010 you can find it. It appears to be a launch party of sort.

The new guy...

V, he was referring to a spam post that was deleted by me. The spammers sneak in here from time to time. Looks like I got him before you saw it. Sorry about the confusion.

Your post is Versys related & not spam.

And welcome aboard, by the way...

That was actually a good video , some sporty roadwork with the travel bags on , a bit of "meandering" through the countryide , some bumpy road , a quick ride through (*ugh) town and back on the open road to go pick up the girl ...........nice work . The only thing missing was a few Ducatis or BMW's posing at the cafe he rode by when going through town

This is another intro video. This one looks like it's by Kawasaki US.

Yellow Versys

Mmm, a Versys in yellow. I like the yellow bikes, one of my two current rides is a yellow Kawi 250. If we would get the yellow Versys in the states, I would have to consider selling both of my bikes for one of those...

I have no idea what the gentleman in the video is saying, but the video is very cool and has a nice trail ride and back-roads segment.

Maybe he is saying, "some trail tires would be awesome" ! That is a pretty rough looking jeep road, at least on camera.

2010 Versys at Bike show

New to this site, shopping for my next bike and had a good look at the 2010 Versys at the recent bike show here. Also looking at the Triumph Tiger, will have to do some test riding as soon as weather permits.
I have been scoping out this site, very informative. I have a pretty good feeling about the bike already, and it sounds very good for my needs.
I'm 52 and coming off a Bonneville America (for sale) looking for something fun again. Had and FZ1 and Honda Superhawk previously.
Love the parrallel twins in Triumphs, and the Versys too it seems, great motors.

Cheers!
