Another new guy.

Hi, I'm Josh.

I will be picking up a 2008 Versys next Thursday. My fourth bike overall, second for this point in time. My other bike is a 2013 Ducati Monster 659, which is currently (you guessed it) broken.

The Versys I'm picking up is that hideous Kawasaki green (which will have to change) and is already kitted out for touring. Last owner even wired up brake and indicator lights on the back of the panniers.

So looking foward to collecting that and getting out there on it.

The Kawi green isn't for everyone I take it. Welcome to the forums!

Honestly, it could be worse. It seems to be a dark metallic mix, which isn't as bad as the matte green you see on some track bikes. But I'd prefer it in orange.

But hey, when my biggest complaint is the colour, I could be doing worse.

Welcome from San Antonio, Texas, USA. And my Ducati isn't broken! Why? Because I don't own one.

I will no doubt develop a love-hate relationship with it. I'll love hating it, because a colour change is low on my list of things I want to do with it.

I'm looking forward to it. I've been riding my cousin's CB500X recently and it feels a lot like that, only a bit bigger.

Welcome from DC, my Ducati isn't broken but is in desperate need of maintenance...

The Versys is such a pleasure to own and ride, congrats.
