New guy from the North East

I just purchased a new to me 2011 Versys. It already had most of the mods done to it that I wanted. Ive made a few changes so far and have to tweak the suspension a bit. But the first ride was fun. I prefer to ride off road and I like to push the limits of my bikes. I've owned a ton of motorcycles over the years and now I find myself with this little Versys. I look forward to seeing what I can make it do.

I rode a little single track with the Versys. It was an easy trail but the whoops and the soft suspension made it interesting.

And I was just thinking about one and being able to use it on some fire roads. Nice work on the single track.
