Okay, a year and three months... but regardless, what a life-changing decision it was to get my first motorcycle. No regrets with the Versys at all. It was a great bike to learn on, and yet as my skills have improved I find myself more and more appreciating what the Versys offers.
Hot off the press in January 2012:
Since then, the following "farkling" has taken place:
-SW-Motech Trax ALU-BOX (
-SW-Motech Crash Bars
-SW-Motech Skid Plate
-SW-Motech Mirror Wideners
-R&G Radiator Guard
-Barkbusters Hand Guards
-Powerbronze Flip windscreen (
-Therm-O-Bob Radiator Bypass
-Screaming Banshee Horn (
-DDM Tuning HID 55w 5000K light
-Pyramid Fenda Extanda + Rear Hugger
-Brake Light Modulator
...to produce this, from a recent trip down to Biloxi, MS and New Orleans:
I should probably stop spending all this money on the bike and actually invest in some rain gear...
Riding home from work the other day and this happened:
Great bike so far. Only took it in for the 7500 mile maintenance (just overall inspection and cable lube, I still changed my own oil). I only use Shell V-Power gas and Amsoil or Mobil 1 10W-40.
Next up on the list:
-Leo Vince underbody exhaust (ordered!)
-Speedy's anti-vibe risers (ordered!)
-New windshield, sucks being a tall person sometimes
-Denali aux headlights
-Tankbag of some kind
-New seat maybe
Thank you all for the support so far. It's been a good ride.
