I picked up a blue 2013 Versys 650 with less than 7500 miles on it this week because I was looking to downsize from my previous bike, but I still wanted something that would be fun to ride. I'd seen a couple Versys around town previously and found the looks to be intriguing. After doing some research, I decided I would take a test ride on one and go from there. I found one at a local shop, rode it, and decided that it was what I wanted. The bike I had just before this was an '08 Concours 14, which while it was fun to ride due to the power, but I found it to be more bike than I wanted for the riding I do. I don't have the opportunity to go on the long trips that it was designed for, and found the majority of my riding being around town. I decided that I wanted something lighter, more maneuverable, and capable of a wider variety of riding - hence the move to the Versys. Being 6'3", I found the Versys more comfortable as well. I haven't had the chance to get any pictures yet, and it will be at least a couple days before I can with the weather we are having right now, but once I get some I'll post them up.
I'm looking forward to being part of the community here.
