Yet another new Versys owner!

Hello everyone!
New to the forum so I thought I would swing and a say hi. Picked up a 2016 Versys 650 LT about a month ago and absolutely love it. I have had a lot of different motorcycles from sport bikes to enduro's but this one seems to be one of the most user-friendly machines I have ever piloted. I needed something that I could use for fun and for work since I travel the finger lakes region daily.
I look forward to keeping this baby around for a few years. It is a very fun bike to flick into the corners and is very nimble in traffic when travelling through the various cities. It is a little buzzy between the 4-5k rpm range and I plan to get that looked at for a possible vibration near the fork clamps. Other than that, It should be a very fun bike for years to come. Especially with the 7 year warranty!!

Thanks! Ordered the light kit for the front and the outlets for the console. So far I have been able to ride it 500 miles and have enjoyed every mile.

Welcome! Very Nice, I'm kinda fond of the Matte Gray/Black myself. I need to get some of those hand guards.

Welcome to Planet Versys!
Nice bike, but I can't wait until the 2017 models come so we get new colors out there (I hope).
The auxiliary lights are next on my list of farkles.

Don't plan, just ride

Thanks everyone! We have about 5 days of prime riding weather ahead of me. I am going to make sure I get the most out of them. Then get the bike in for it's first service so I can start hammer fisting the rpms!
