Well after a lot of investigation, test rides and scrapping my ecomomies I did it.
About a month ago I bought a new 2018 Kawasaky Versys 650 Grand Tourer. I wanted a bike that could be handled in the city traffic for commuting to work but that also could be a good companion for some travelling... And here was the place my 2016 CB500X was laking...
So far so good... About 1600km done, mainly commuting to work and some side km to my usual playgrond: Arrabida mountain and beach roads, about 20km of montain that lead to the beach. I had to introduce my ride to the atlantic ocean, and I think she liked it. I love the sea and I coulkd not live far away from it.
I share with you some photos of my new ride (some are phone pictures, don't mind the quality) and the places that she went to see the ocean (Arrabida's coast and cape Espichel).
