first road trip

I haven't had my (Capn Kirk) V long. Probably only a couple tanks of gas burned through since I picked it up about 6 weeks ago. Still didn't completely feel bonded with it.

That's changed now. Got out for a nice 5 day camp-n-ride on the bike last week.. put > 1700 miles on it for the trip including two +500 mile days.

Bike did great, I really enjoyed it and got in the groove with it. Got to Deals Gap, and all the other curvy road goodness in that area and even some gravel around Unicoi trail. I was happy with how it handled the gravel.. so much so I may go with some gravelly-er tires on it next time around and maybe even a skid plate.

there's a few small kinks to work out, but for a maiden voyage it went very smooth.

OK, now you've gone and done it. The Versys police will catch up with you soon. Maybe you didn't know that the Versys is NOT an off-road bike.
