New Versys

I'm picking up my 2016 650LT in the morning. I'm looking forward to having a comfortable bike with a good fuel range again!

Just got it home after a short 4 mile ride from the dealer. I hoped to have more time to ride today, but they didn't put the locks in the side cases until I asked what was in the bag they handed me with the paperwork. As long as it took a mechanic do it, I'm really glad I asked about it instead of getting stuck figuring it out myself. I got the gray/black. My last bike was a Speed Triple after having a V-Strom 650 then a Tiger 1050. It felt a little strange to be sitting "in" the bike again instead of on top of it, but it was very comfortable. I had the screen all the way down and didn't have any buffeting on the highway, which I was kind of concerned about. I'll have some time the next couple of days to wring it out a little bit, but it seems to be what I was looking for.
