New member Intro

Greetings from San Antonio, Tx. I recently traded a 2013 Vstrom 650 for a 2016 Versys 650 LT, so I'm still in the getting acquainted phase with the Versys. I just got it past the 500 m break last Saturday by going on a ride to Kerrville, Tx.

Glad I found this forum and am looking forward to participating. I've already read some useful and interesting posts. Thanks for the work done here.

In addition to the 2016 Versys 650, I have a 2014 Ninja 650 ABS. The Ninja is the preferred ride for commuting (I'm a part time community college instructor) and Starbucks runs, while the Versys is going to be my longer distance choice. They're both good though.

English as a Second Language (ESL). It's English language instruction to non-native speakers of English.

Superb. I used to do that back in the Dominican Republic. A little diversion from my main job. Mostly kids and they were pretty fun.
