New Member from Arkansas

Hey...am a new member so wanted to introduce myself. Am from Arkansas and have been trying to figure out my next bike which is why I am here reading about the Versys 650. 56 years old and like to explore the mountain roads here in Arkansas. Most of the riding will be back roads and mountain roads with perhaps the occasional dirt road thrown in for fun. All my riding is one up. Want a bike I can pack my fly rod on, some light camping gear and head to one of our rivers. Liking the Versys 650LT and comparing to the V-Strom 650, BMW 700GS, Triumph Tiger 800, and the FJ09. Considering waiting on the Honda Africa Twin but more than I need. For true off road riding I have a non street legal 250 so not looking for an off road bike.

Anyway, will continue reading the post and hearing what you all say about the Versys.

Thanks

Fly Rod (Mike)

Hi Mike, & which part of Arkansas are you living at?

PS, there's some great fly fishing around here in Branson on Taneycomo which has it's own hatchery & attracts thousands of fishermen from all over the USA every year.
