New guy in the room
Howdy all, new guy here...to the Versys at least. I've been riding 35 years or so, since a kid, been through and still have lots of bikes. Live outside Atlanta so North Ga mountains are my go to. Lots of years roadracing behind me, but just street riding when I can these days.
I just picked up a lightly crashed 09 from a customer of the shop that I work. His insurance payout was healthy and somehow didn't total the bike. In the end, he was ready to move on to a more updated ride and putting that kind of money back in this one didn't seem reasonable to him, understandably. I made an offer and thankfully he accepted. I've got to put some time and money into it but should work out to be a great deal on a great bike.. Can't wait to get some miles on "Melon", as my wife has already named it! :-)
I've already snooped around a little via Google searches but am sure I'll be around often to learn some things the easy way from the folks that been there and done it!
