Great Success

After buying my Versys on Tuesday, today I rode from Gettysburg, PA to Ann Arbor Michigan, a little under 500 miles in one day. It is much more nimble and fun than my V-strom, and I am hooked. The V-strom hits craigslist on Monday, I am glad I made the choice to buy the Versys!


Thanks for all the support on the forum.

The V has a high fun factor!

My bike before the Versys was a Wee Strom and I have no regrets whatsoever. The Versys is way more fun and agile.

Sounds like you had a good trip. Nice looking bike - red, of course. Also the hard bags look good as well. I thought about those for a good long while but chose the Givi V35s instead. Perhaps I made a mistake.

Is your wind screen a Givi, and if so what do you think of it after 500 miles?

I am now up to over 1000 miles on the new bike and still loving it. The Windscreen is a givi and I had no problems with it. I've got a madstad though, so that helps.
