New to the Site

Just bought a 2011 Versys with 2300 miles and looking forward to putting many more on it. Stinks that we have gotten our first snow/Ice the week I get my bike!!! So with that and work have not had time to even ride it yet. (except for the test ride last week)
I found this site and just wanted to join and learn what I can about the bike.

I have had a number of bikes, the last 2 were Honda ST 1300 (sold due to divorce ) and then I had and sold a VTX 1300. I liked the bike but not a big fan of the cruiser style ride.
Lots of experience on bikes. 2005 electraglide, 2007 electraglide, 2009 BMW R 1200 RT-P and 2012 BMW R 1200 RT-P.
Just looking forward to learning the do's and dont's of this machine.
Thanks
Cmotorman

Vast Wealth of Knowledge on this site



I have only six inches of snow in my yard, and lots of black ice everywhere, plus road salt.

Man that is almost shorts weather, saw a guy last week wearing shorts at minus 10, while I was out walking the Husky ( who needs no coat until it hits minus 15).
I had a parka, toque and mitts with snow pants on, so not sure what heat source he has going, could be nuclear
