Hey everyone! I go by the nickname Goody and live on the west edge of Ohio, work in Springfield, Ohio (68 mile ride/drive) and am originally from Indy. Been riding since I was 12 (41 yrs ago). Looking forward to learning a lot from the group. Thanks

Got my 2016 Versys yesterday...yay

Hey again - yesterday I went to a dealership in Wooster, Ohio (3 hrs away) to buy a used 'Strom... then this gorgeous beast (Candy Matte Orange) Versys 650 caught my eye and I was in love. I've been riding since I was a kid, but the last NEW bike I bought was a 1975 Honda MR50 dirt bike. My latest ride is a 1981 CB750 Custom - runs great, low miles, but I just don't feel comfortable taking it on long trips with the guys. A couple of accessories and this bike will be ready to go on a long haul. I can't wait! Of course we had freezing rain here today once I got her unloaded and thus I bought it with 12 miles on the odo and it still has that many... patience, patience...

Welcome. You are in my neck of the woods. Will be moving to the Springfield area from Bellefontaine in the next few months.

@goody...

Congrats on the nice new Versys. I sat on the same colored Versys, 2016 at my local dealer a few weeks ago. I was coming home from out test driving used V Strom 650. I wanted to see if they had used one's at my dealer. That brand new 16 Versys with 0 miles sure looked n felt great.

Looks like it fit in back of the Ridgeline well. I traded my '12 RL for a '15 Highlander. Wish I had the Ridgy back now. But still shopping for used V Stroms and Versys' now. Maybe I need to go sit on that brand new Versys again, hmmmm. Enjoy your new ride.
