Well at 67 now I've owned about every kind of bike from cruiser (temp insanity) to touring, sport, sport touring, dirt, etc. and I've about settled on the Versys as my long term bike. I've owned one since it came out in 2008 and can't think of anything I'd replace it with.
I've got it torn down now to replace the plugs and that's the only thing I don't like about the bike is how much you have to take off just to get to them. Then again, that's nothing compared to my ST1300!
