Took the V 168 miles 2up

My wife and I rode to Delafield, WI for an advrider meet and greet and the bike handled great. After arriving to the restaurant I commented that we'd be the only versys there and literally minutes later another green one pulls up lol. People seemed to really like the V, tons of questions and general gawking.

Here's a pic that someone else took because he thought my V was so rad.



Here's a couple from the meet

There are a lot more street bikes than I thought there would be at one of those rallies...

So how did the wife do on the ride? Did she complain about the seat much, if any?

I was surprised to see another Green V there too!

Mine was the other one. You can see it in one of the pics you posted.

Here is a pic of yours.



Here is another pic of the dimple on your fender. Mine has the same dimple. I asked my dealer to see if this was damage or if this is the way Kawasaki rolls.Guess its the way Kawasaki rolls.



I managed a couple of hundred miles that day. Started out at Coffee meet with the ST.Ners in Beaver Dam WI. I was still in break in mode so I could not go on their ride to Delaphield. I would need the whole tac to keep up with the 1200 gts and zx1400s and FJRs. I'm sure that when I can rail on the Versys it is going to do well on the tight twistie roads.
