Hi all

hey everyone,
New member from Melbourne, Australia. Have been looking for a Versys for as a first bike to accommodate my long gangly frame, may have finally tracked one down locally!

Looking forward to learning and reading through the forums.

cheers
Ben

Welcome on board from a 2009 owner. Get the lowering foot blocks for the pegs for the sake of your knees, and then adjust the shifter and brake.

Talking

thanks peeps!
Picked up the bike last weekend. Have her in bits at the moment for a deep clean but was very excited on the first ride home, even in peak traffic.

OZ that is the perfect place to ride, you're going to need to take it on the Black Spur

I have relatives in Eldon, although the bike mechanic rides a DR650, there are more 4wd tracks in OZ than paved roads, every paved road I drove on was a blast, so looking forward to returning in 2017 ( I did 2000 KM last time there in 2013)!!

Can't help you with custom seat, however this riser block will make the seat alot more comfortable.
