my second post so I can get going in this forum

Hi all again, I'm Dave from Statesville, NC. I was riding a Suzuki GS500F and liked it plenty but not nearly as much as my white 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. I've ordered up a bunch of parts to add onto my bike so I'm looking forward to be able to post in this forum. New tires (want to share my feedback on these), windscreen, tank bag, top case, gear shift indicator, usb port, relay, heated grips - some already installed most on order and a few more on my wish list. Looking forward to sharing details on these parts and modifications. I bought this Versys slightly used a few months ago in Atlanta GA. Rode it back to Statesville, NC via a wrong turn near the NC/TN border and took in about 30 miles of dirt roads! Great first ride on the bike!

The bike can handle dirt roads, no worry - usually the limitation is the rider.

Here was my first attempt at dirt:



I have since done a lot more and enjoyed it.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
