Breaking the V in

So I packed up the Versys with a tent, sleeping bag, and food needed for one night of camping. Had yesterday off of work so decided to take advantage of it. Rode about 160 miles north to Fox Ridge to do some camping/hiking.

I now realize that I didn't take a picture of the bike in any of the pictures :/

Took highways the whole way (no interstate) and probably took me 3-4 hours to get there. Got hit by some rain on the way back but other than that no mishaps. I'm beginning to hear "What kind of bike is it" more and more and I'm coming up with more clever ways of answering. It's like a cruiser and a supermoto had a baby.

Loving the bike more and more. I have owned it for a little over 2 months now and have put 1400 miles on it. The goal is next spring to take a trip to Tail of the Dragon. I need the appropriate gear first.

Photos are too large for me to attatch...

Any free picture hosting sites out there? The quality of resized pictures really bugs me...

Irfanview is a great little photo editor, nothing to do with hosting. Like Eddie I use Photobucket, I shrink my photos down to 1024 * 567 using irfanview then upload to Photobucket, then paste the link into forums. It works well if you can ignore all the advertising for which I use adblock.
