Hey folks, I thought that I'd share with you my experience with the Versys on TLH.
First, I want to clarify something: THERE ARE NO BUGS IN LABRADOR!!! going there when I did, mid May, might help
My bike is pretty stock, except the handguards, aux lighting, Happy Trails side racks, SW Motech tail rack, HB crash bars, blinged footpegs, modified headlight, heated grips, DIY mud cover for shock and electrics, Shinko 705 (120/90-17 front and 150/70-17 rear) with about 4k km on them prior to departure, raised and modified seat, fender extender, rad guard, and other small things to call this bike my own. Point being that what I did to it can be done by anyone, with the same lack of skills as I.
Now, I am happy to report that the only things that failed to make it back were things I added to the bike, everything that was stock stayed put, well, almost everything, but that is a different story... Some made it back, but in the sadlebags. I should mention that almost every bolt on this bike has been loctited and torqued back to factory settings though.
Will be back with more, but just came back and there are so many things to do after being away for a while. This pic was taken immediately after getting off the ferry in Blanc Sablon.
