Greetings and Salutations
Greetings to all you Versys folk!
Looking forward to joining your community in a few months. I currently ride a 2016 Triumph Street Triple R, and was recently faced with a dilemma.
While the bike is absolutely amazing when going for a spirited country ride, it's not as comfy and doesn't have the wind protection I'd like for commuting to work. Originally I was planning on picking up a 2016 Versys 650 LT, but was sold on the StripleR after a short test ride. While I absolutely love the bike I was debating trading in for something a little more fitting to how I ride to work. Was considering something like the Multistrada, BMW R1200RT or GS, Tiger, Caponord to name a few. In the end I just couldn't live with trading away the StripleR, so I decided it would be better to pick up a 2nd bike. Hence the 650 LT. Already done my homework, so I'm looking forward to test riding and getting to know you guys.
Current: 2016 Triumph Street Triple R
Future: Addition of a Versys 650 LT
