New Member Intro

Hi. Just bought a 2009 with 3000 miles yesterday. Haven't been this excited about a new bike in a long time. Looking forward to getting to know the bike and you people.

Got mine 3 weeks ago and just went over 1,000 miles today. The Versys is a fun bike to ride. What model did you get?

New Member Intro Pt. II

Was a toss up between the new Versys and the Yamaha FZ1 back in the day and I went with the FZ1. Ten years later, finally got around to trying out the Versys. This is going to be fun.

I feel like I found a great deal. The price was decent, but the bike - It looks so clean and new, with barely any miles, and rides like a champ. I found this forum while hunting for a replacement stock windscreen. The previous owner had a decal of some sort on this one and it left a very nefarious residue that I've only managed to make worse. I can't post or reply into the classifieds as of yet, but if anybody has a real clean stocker they'd like to part with, please get in touch. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Weljo and Eddie. I'll try the WD-40, but at this point I think the damage is done, after trying the gentle approach I moved on to ether wipes for dissolving adhesive which make this awful cloudy mess which disappears completely... until it's dry!
