New to me new ride!

New to the forum and a new Versys owner!
Picked up a used (610 miles) 650 lt from a guy his wife didn't like to shift.
Basically a brand new bike.
Rode it home (3 hrs) and fell in love. Great handling and a lot of pep. Finishing the breakin and looking forward to a lot of future miles.

Yes but they are being replaced by the dealer the guy bought it from due to scratching them at the first service. As soon as he receives them, he will send them to me.

Heres some additional photos with the bags on. Previous owner just sent them after the supplied new ones as they scratched the old ones during the first service.
New helmet, tags, insurance and bags....ready to ride now!

Not often you find them that low a milage.

Welcome

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
