New member, not so new owner
I just joined, though I've been lurking and benefiting from the knowledge base here for some time. My motivation for joining now is a few specific technical questions about the charging system that I'll get to once I have access to the proper areas of the forum...
I got my 09 blue Versys mid-2015. It replaced a 6th gen VFR, which was a great bike but nowhere near as endearing as the little 650. Before that I had a Yamaha Seca II, an SV650, a Buell XB, and several air cooled RD's. I find that the riding position is perfect for me and that the combination of just the right kind of power and super sharp handling makes the V the - almost - perfect bike for me.
I commute ~35 miles everyday in Roanoke, VA and I often take long solo trips, mostly to the coast. All in all, I've put 22k miles on the bike since I got it.
I look forward to getting to know you all and I hope I can add to the knowledge base that I've already utilized.
