it's my son's fault

I have been looking at the Yamaha FJ09 and the Versys, but resisting the urge to buy. However, when my son got back into motorcycling by buying a 2015 Yamaha FJ09, I got pushed off the fence. The FJ is a great bike, but it has more motor than I wanted, so I got the Versys. I think that we each got the best bike for us. We look like Christmas tree ornaments going down the road together. I am excited about having someone to go to the mountains with me again.

Why blame your kid for something you must have taught him?
Time for fun, but maybe ease into it.

Congrats! I like yours better though. And the more your son drives yours, he will soon realize Father Knows Best!

Awesome!

Does only one headlight light up on low beam on the Yamaha too? That is one of my pet peeves with side by side headlights.

Welcome aboard. Nice pair of Christmas ornaments if I do say so. Well done - for each of you.
