Took 5 Years but I Finally Got a Versys!

Hi all! I've been a lurker on the forums since 2012 but was dumb and kept buying other motorcycles. Well I finally straightened up my act and traded in my '15 Yamaha Bolt in on a 2012 Versys! I've had it less than a week and this is already my favorite motorcycle! It's been raining all week but I've still managed 300 miles so far. All the rain gave me time for some farkles. SW Motech skid and crash bars, and some Barkbusters.
Day the V came home:

Day 3 playing in the rain!

And the armor:


Thanks all! And I'm pumped to be part of the community now lol.

Welcome. Better get different tires if you are going to ride those type of wet roads.

The bike looks mean all in black.
