CB500X to versy 650

I am new member. Have a Cb500x and love it but wanted more power and stability for long highway rides so I bought 2016 Versus 650. So far so good. But it taller and heavier!!

I decided to go with the HyperPro 1.0" lowering spring and I lowered the front forks one inch as well. I cannot belive how much lighter the bike feels!!! never thought an inch would make that much difference but it does!!! Thanks for suggesting lowering.
