Decided to quit lurking

I have been reading the forum a lot and lurking. I decided to finally register and say hi.

I have a Orange 2016 Versys650 LT that I picked up new last year. In the past I have had a Ninja250 (aka the moped of motorcycles for someone 6'2") and a CBR600F4i.

I used to have roommates with bikes and got to try many sorts of cruisers. I liked the sitting positions but hated the breathless motors. The V seemed like a good compromise.

Since i commute daily around Seattle with it, the upright position (read view over and around vehicles) is huge selling point, as well as the low speed maneuverability since highways around here move at 2-3MPH for 4 hours every morning and night.... thanks gridlock.
