Hello from Skippack, PA

Was riding a Yamaha FZ-09 (in addition to an 03 Road King, 00 Speed Triple) and decided to move to the Versys.

Way more comfortable, way more refined - going down a few CC is a nice change, the Versys rides like its on rails and could not be happier.

I'll do some basic mods, generally around cell phone mounts, aux lighting, etc. as well as adding some engine bars (HB) and perhaps some mods to make it breathe easier.

I'm an MSF instructor so I'm looking forward to using this in some of my Advanced and Intermediate classes but really happy to have made the move.

Welcome from AZ. You might ALSO want to upgrade your horn (I use the WOLO Bad Boy in each of my Vs...).

Welcome......I test rode an FZ09 before getting the Versys (dealer didn't have a Versys in stock and insisted that I try the 09), it was an interesting bike but would have gotten me too many tickets.
