Hi all,

The last two bikes I owned were an 86 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 and a 79 Suzuki 425. I loved my Kawi' and had ridden a friends 650 Ninja a few times, also loved it. I'd like to do a little touring and some cross-state adventures. Everything I read about the Versys is positive. I am joining the forums in the hopes that someone in the northeast has a basic '09 or so that they'd be willing to part with for around 3k. I have a few bids on various sites around there but have not met a reserve yet.

Anyway, just introducing myself and my reasons for signing up. Thanks for having me.

PS - Some of you may know me from the VN750 forums under the tag"vulcan power" or the suzuki forums under "gspower".

I snagged my girlfriend from Syracuse. Just reached out to a forum member selling an 07 in Canada. Wish me luck!

So one of the offers I made on eBay went through. It is a red 08 Versys with Givi saddle bags. The Canadian bike was much better maintained and I am kicking myself in the ass a little bit, but the bike I found is also very nice. It will need some basic maintenance (fluids, valve adjustment, etc) but I think it's been maintained. Plus, I haven't gotten my hands dirty in a long time so it'll be nice to get back into the top end. $3350 out the door (I paid an extra $100 in Paypal fees to insure my purchase). Video links below.
