New member from Newcastle, UK

Hi everyone, newbie from Newcastle UK here, I just became a proud owner of a black 2007 versys 650 2 weeks ago, I bought this as my first 'big' bike in time for when I passed my full test, which should have been last week, however 3 days after buying the bike I broke a couple of ribs meaning I couldn't ride or take my test :-(

Anyway in the meantime I have been on here reading as much as possible and admiring some of the bikes belonging to other members on here. I will get some pics up as soon as I get time.

Welcome from Texas, USA. Quite an introduction. Congratulations on becoming the proud owner of a Versys. Good luck on your exam, and sorry to hear about your broken ribs! Hopefully you didn't break them because of the bike. Also hope your recovery is quick and complete.

FWIW - I broke a couple of ribs when I "low-sided" riding up Mt Graham in AZ, a few years back, so I know what you're going thru. Just a few scratches on BIG RED....
