Greetings from India

Hey guys, glad to be here. I am an avid tourer and have a few lakh miles under my belt and recently upgraded to a Versys 650. In India the Versys is rapidly gaining popularity and has an ever growing appeal for adventure biking. Since I am new to adventure bikes, i am sure this forum would help me in my queries about the machine and other related issues.

Hi Ajai

Welcome to world of Versys!!! Enjoy the Rides!!! Take Care!!!

I recently picked up a Versys 1000.

Like you say I am meeting a lot of Versys riders because of its popularity :-)

Where in India are you from? Are you part of the Versys India Riders WhatsApp group?

regards
Pramod

Rugged India ..

Hey guys .. just wondering how many have you burned rubber and let the mud fly here in India. The riding fraternity here is as crazy as they come and touring is cult. India offers a varied terrain from coastal routes, open highways, mountain roads and tracks, extereme jungle and offroad circuits just to name a few. We have diverese cultures here which adds to the flavor of riding and discovering. A loaded bike with its rider is a crowd magnet here the moment you get off, there will be a flurry of handshakes followed by questions with a lot of awe and respect. Just give you all an insight I am posting some images .. they may not be Versys specific but its from touring on the Royal Enfield that I have lovingly owned and cherished over the years ...

Welcome to the club! I'd venture to say that you get more incidental off-road style riding in India than USA. Enjoy that suspension travel!
