My road-ready Versys

Allow me to show-of my Versys a little.

Took a ride today to test some new accessories and while it was pretty uneventful day, something wonderful happened to the bike over night.
It may be all the luggage or the new windshield or tilted handlebars, but whatever I did or did not do, the bike is transformed. Now, I can control it solely by thought process. I wish it into a corner and it obeys effortlessly. I can almost let go the bars in the middle of the corner and it wont mind.
On this familiar road I was faster trough most of the corners for an entire gear. I had a lot of 'understeer' before and it was killing my confidence, but now bike was mesmerizing.
I don't know how it happened but I'm in love with the bike again.















A few landscapes to shuffle it.








And one over the top:





Cheers.

Cheers guys.

If it is the weight that sorted it out, I'm a complete idiot for not setting up the suspension this whole time.
I wont make any more excuses for not doing it.

Funny you should mention that because compared to women landscapes are rubbish.
I'm not exaggerating or being patriotic or proud but there is a quality feminine gene pool here. I hear people claiming this exact thing all over the world but I take the matter seriously and do not embellish.
To continue this analogy, they are a bit like these landscapes - difficult and inaccessible.

Thanks for sharing those pictures Ivan V. Orange is my favorite Versys color. The horse-shoe soft bag looks good on your bike.

Hey, Ivan - I saw your bike on the Giant Loop Moto blog.

Just got my GB bag today and I'll be stuffing it for a maiden voyage in a few hours.
