Thumbs up Proud owner of a 2016 Versus 650 LT

Hi Everyone,

For the last year or so I've been looking for the best combination of commuter tool, touring companion, and sporty weekend canyon carver. Two weeks ago, after a lot of homework including reading quite a few posts on this forum, I purchased a new 2016 Versus 650 LT in spark black. My wife has stopped asking me why I keep going out to the garage at night--she knows I'm staring at the beautiful new bike. All I can say is it's the most balanced and capable bike I've ever owned. Just a brilliant machine. I'm looking forward to many grin-inducing miles and tapping into your collective expertise for sage advice. Cheers!

Glad you like your new versys. When I get a new bike my wife throws a sleeping bag and pillow in the garage.

You're lucky. When I get a new bike my wife throws all my belongings in the garage and locks the door.

At least your belongings wind up in the garage. Mine go to Good Will.

Cheers,
