Hi all

Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a while and reading a lot about the Versys and I'm planning on buying a '16 650 LT (Orange) this week. I can't wait. I've been thinking about this bike for almost a year and sold my Suzuki 3 days ago so I figured I better hurry up and fill that empty spot in my garage Anyway, thanks for all the info so far and I look forward to chatting with you in the forums. Any prepurchasing insights are welcome too!

Purchasing insights?

Go into several dealerships. Walk around and look at a lot of bikes.

Ask how much

Seem disinterested.

Somewhere along the line, ask the bottom dollar on that orange Versys that you want.

Offer at least 1,000 less (assuming that they already told you a "discounted" price).

Seem disinterested.
Walk away.

Come back a week later, repeat.

Also check Cycle Trader and Craigslist for slightly used ones. You can sometimes get a very low mileage version that someone has already added lots of accessories and still has remaining warranty. It's worth a look

No matter where you go - there you are.

Ha. That's pretty much what I did. A local dealer wasn't interested so I went out of state (a bit of a hassle) and got what I wanted for a good price. Now they have to uncrate it while I wait.

Hi again! It's official. My sweet matte orange 650 LT is in the garage. I'm looking forward to getting past the break in period. I'll see you all in the forums.
