I have done almost 1000 miles on the new Versys and I have one word to describe my thoughts to this point.
It is such a great machine. It rides like a dream. Will haul ass when needed, handles great and does the two up thing with ease.
Jamie and I have taken it out twice and logged a couple of 200+ mile days and it is awesome. I really like the light weight, good suspension and terrific motor. She seems to be very happy and has plenty of room in the pillion seat.
We are looking forward to getting the top case and having just a little more space for things. Jamie used the side bags to store her helmet all weekend and it worked out well. I wear an XL and it is a tight fit. I have a new lid so I don't want to scratch it so have not been using my side bag for storage.
I am getting some electrical things installed this Friday. I will be adding my GPS (Zumo 660) and our heated gear to a fuse block. I am headed down to the Texas Hill country on a 3 day trip the last weekend of the month, so I want to have everything wired.
Went to a Tech day for our local BMW club here on Saturday. The Versys was the talk of the day. Everyone loved the look of the bike. I have to say that I loved my C-14 but I am so glad I made this move. I have not been this happy with a motorcycle in a long long time. Makes me want to ride everyday..
Till next time. Ride safe everyone!
