Hello from West Wales

Hi from a cold and wet West Wales.
I have a 2014 Versys 650 ABS Tourer; I have owned the bike for 11 months and have covered a pleasant 6500 miles on it. I hope to cover many more miles on it.

They were Bond Bugs. Great cars, if you like that kind of thing!

Thanks for the kind welcome to the forum.

Eyup boyo, nice forum name, & it makes me wonder how many of these Ham Shanks will actually "get it!"??? ;-)
Anyway, welcome, & I was down your neck of the woods last year during my stays in Bolton, Chester & Porthmadog where l have friends & family (no Taffy in me though, 1/2 Irish 1/2 English)
I did a coastal tour from Chester to N Wales & then down past Newquay etc & ended up in Cardiff.
What are you doing on here anyway, are you planning a trip over the pond?....I'm sure you know of the Brit Versys forum, l think l have a photo of me & them on 2014 Welsh Tour.
PS, mine's a black 'un too, & l've heard people actually ride the slower versions in a multitude of "gay" colours!!!!

I have an irrational interest in 3 wheelers, but these are more my speed

We have a special technique because gas/petrol is so expensive in the UK to save money & create a sort of camaraderie between us!!!

You did well to get a clear photograph in Betws y Coed! It's usually raining, snowing and in the middle of a year-long hurricane season!
Looks like you were all enjoying yourselves!

I think it was in May 2014 & we got the designated one sunny weekend a year that they are allotted by the Welsh Tourist Board!!!

The big guy & he little blonde are Germans & they travel over every year to join in the "not much fun or frolicks" weekend with the crusty old Brit farts!

Here's my commemorative T shirt piccie.
