Hello from Steve in Sunny Fl!

Hello versys owners, I've joined your ranks with a new to me 2015 650lt, green, currently residing in my shop. It reminds me of what my previous klr650's aspired to be, though I haven't approached any dirt roads yet! I look forward to learning my bike, and probably reconnecting with some Concours owners who I know through my affiliation with COG. Steve

Welcome from former COG member in Austin. Are you still doing miraculous things with the first gen Concours?

Welcome Steve. Are you going to improve the Versys, like you did for the Connie?

I knew there were some Coggers Here, at least I hoped so! Nice to see y'all, it also helps me know what to expect of the versys owners and culture.

SteveJ.... hmmm.... HA! Steve and I go way back probably 12 years! I met him at a COG ride, and we have ridden many miles together. He IS a consummate motorcyclist in the finest sense, and I've learned much from him over the years. In fact I rode Steves versysLT 2-3 weeks ago, and that's what sealed my fate in being a versys owner. It's a bike that might not cause me to lose my licence, as opposed to my c-14. I think Steve told me about meeting you Greg, won't be long til I do, I'm sure.

I am still doing plenty of work on the c-10;s though Shoodaben went to a new home a year ago (I never thought I would do that) since I was riding the 2nd new to me c-14. I've done some work on it; suspension, pipe and ECU flashing and it's a very impressive bike. 160 hp with the pipe. My license is always in danger when riding the c14!

As far as Versys improvements... well the bike will need to "talk" to me first. I don't do stuff just to "do" it. If / when I find an area I want to improve on, I'll address it then, for now I'm just getting acquainted. I have to be honest, it's nice to be able to ride a bike that lets me relax a bit. Fast enough to keep from being run over, but not begging to break the sound barrier. Light enough to not require work to move it around. High enough to scrape the clouds... HMMM, not sure that one is gonna stay... anyone have a leg stretcher I can borrow? Steve

Sorry but that's just a classic line, too good to give up.
