Greetings I am looking at the Versys x300 as a re entry bike. It has been quite a few years since I have owned a motorcycle.

As minimalist I'm looking at Motorcycles from 200cc's to 500cc's. The x300 is a peppy happy medium that should be able to take me all over the north east.

Very nice video. I wish I would have known about those dirt roads when I was there in '15 on my KLX250S. I would have got to experience views that few get to see. Oh well.

NH Strawdog, if you are mostly riding back roads and solo the Versys 300 should be the perfect bike for you. I love the look of the Honda Rally, but like the guys said it should have been made with the 300 or 500 engine.

My little KLX250S can do an honest 65 mph all day long with my 200lbs geared up and saddlebags with spare gas and water so the Versys 300 ought to be fine for those New England roads.

I definitely wouldn't attempt to take the Versys 300 on some of the jeep trails I scraped the KLX through though.

Welcome From Canada

to the forum. kind of funny how I started out with bikes, first a 1970 SL350 , then a Yamaha 650, years later a 74 XL 250R, a DRZ400S , then my 07 Versys and now the 2015 650ABS Versys. As I got up in years, my son suggested to stop riding off road and either get street tires and or a street bike, the reason being that I had a couple mishaps, one with the bike on top of me, by myself, minor injuries and it took a while to extract myself. So each person needs to know their limits, also if you have family involved, consideration needs to be made as doing stupid things usually isn't reversible. Having said that, I still go on gravel roads, but if there is a alternative, I take it, going down in six inches of gravel last year was a warning, in hindsight I should have filed a claim with the township, as I had a witness, no injuries and just scrapes I let it go.

Oh Did I say
