Hello! Names Jack!
I started riding in December on a brand new 2016 FZ07. Took my MSF course in the spring and got my license.
Really loved the bike, but being 6'4" I found it very uncomfortable on the highway. Due to where I live, its difficult to go anywhere without getting on the highway. So I would end up making circuits around town, and was enjoying the ride but getting bored.
Got into some research and was looking into a Versys 650, Versys 1000, Tiger 800 XR/XRX and a BMW GS800.
Got the best deal and most trade in on the Versys 1000, used with 1165 miles.
Took it out last night after work, put 28 miles on it, mostly highway. Absolute dream in comparison!
Thought I would regret it possibly, but instantly did not when I was on the highway! Super cool bike, got an aftermarket windshield coming, stock one is a bit short for me and the buffeting noise is very loud at the top of my helmet, its actually quieter if I drop the screen lower.
Anyway, thanks for having me! Any recommendations on new hand guards would be welcome!
