Found this in my garage when I got home!

I've been lurking on site most of this year in anticipation of buying a new Versys next year but... my wife surprised me big time and had this delivered before I got home yesterday !!!!!

You need to do a follow up with more pictures, that is the rule on new members

It's funny a friend said the same thing and my wife says "Oh hell no, were paying for that bike now, you ride it now."

What happened is hard to find the words to describe it,that is where a "picture is worth a thousand words "phrase comes into play.

What Joe said pretty much describes it, not the material things but the thought and action that just occurred! Something for all of us to think about.

What a keeper.

Mine gave me the OK to get the Versys, but I had to do the shopping.

We look forward to seeing more of you here in the forum

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

Awesome wife, great looking bike! I do have a question though. I don't know of any dealership locally that would sell a new bike in a crate due to legal liability. How did she pull that off?

I don't suppose you're in the market for an elderly adopted son, are you? Just wondering... I do my homework, clean up after myself (most of the time), and am (largely) housebroken.

I don't really want to spend Thanksgiving at the homeless animal shelter, help a guy out will ya? (and leave the Versys keys where I can find them.)

Thx.
