Picking up new to me Versys in a couple of days

Hey all... Ive been a longtime Versys owner wanabe..... & now gonna actually have one.
A 2012 one owner bike with low miles drew me in. I'll be a 2nd bike to my Tenere so setting it up for day trips mostly. Here in central Texas we've got tons of paved county roads (goatpaths) that the Versys will love.....
I'll be bac with a first ride impression when the weather permits.

Texas Too....

Welcome! I'm window shopping a '08 Versys and just found a '12 Versys, both 650's in the Houston area. About $1000 difference in price but I think I'd appreciate the newer models updated features. Not sure the wife agrees as it'll put me over the budget I promised I'd stayat while hunting for a used bike.

While researching the 2012's here I found a thread where someone posted a recall of the 2012 for a problem where the footpeg(s) might break off. I'm hoping this is the first owner and has had the bike checked for this issue as letters were sent to 2012 owners. Not sure how a used buyer can tell if this has been addressed on a V they may potentially purchase. And if not, wonder what the statute of limitations is for having recall repairs of a bike with a second or third owner?

Of course as often happens, not all 2012's may have this issue. I've only found that one thread where it was addressed and not many posted replies of others having this issue. Sorry if I'm being a drag here of your new to you bike, just a heads up. I'll go look at this bumble bee-colored 2012 V and see if seller can address this issue. Or if they are even aware of it. But do enjoy that bike, nice roads in Central TX to use it on.

Buy the newer bike unless you just hate the color or something else. The wife will get over it and you will be better off on a newer bike unless the o8 is mint.
