Finally brought my 2016 home

I finally rode my "new to me" 2016 Versys home from the dealer. Its 32deg F,breezy, with snow flurries. Glad I had my Gerbing electric jacket. They hooked up a battery tender lead and I just plugged in and rode home 45 minutes away. I couldn't help but grin all the way. Ran like a top!

1st thoughts: The mirrors are great... if I want to see my elbows. I will fix immediately with the mirror extenders. Already ordered them.

Vibes are very minimal. Power was plentiful for my needs. Handled great. I'm used to a much heavier bike. This feels like a dirt bike by comparison.

Wind protection is decent. What a good day to test that! The PO added bark busters which provide better wind protection than the Kawasaki stockers.

Can't wait to ride some more. Woo Hoo!
