Breaking in my 2015 Versys LT

Did a lot of reading online and could not find any one who didn't like the Versys.

Finally picked up a 2015 Versys LT with 176 miles on it. Previous owner traded it back in after a week.

Getting cold in Nebraska but was out riding in 34 degree weather with 2 other friends.

Ha, I bought my 2015 650 LT with low miles too, less than 100. I'm in Nebraska too (Omaha), what color is your Versys? Mine is white.

I can't help but wonder WHY so many very-low mileage Vs out there being sold, considering how GREAT they are.

Demonstrators?

The one I got in September (690 miles) was traded in on a Can Am Spyder as the Versys (even lowered) was too tall for the gent. At least that's the story the salesman told me.

I was wondering the same thing why so many low mileage bikes being sold back or for sale so quickly. Anyway, if you guys run across anymore of those deals say 15 or 16 LT let me know. Hope to have my Harley sold soon. Promised the wife I would not buy another bike till the Harley was gone.

Love mine

Love my 2016 650 LT. Installed the National touring windshield to end the buffeting on long highway stints.
