My dh and I purchased our first Versys on Monday. We drifted over from riding Kawasaki Vulcans. He had a 1600 Classic and I still have my 2000 Classic.

He's been wanting a Versys for quite a few years and always liked the single headlight version. We found a 2014 650 hold over at our local dealership, for a sweet price, and went in with the intentions of buying it. However, they wouldn't allow him to test ride it so he walked. That's when we discovered they came out with a 300.

We drove down the road and test rode the 300 and that's what we came home with. He decided on the 300 because it's lighter and it wouldn't be too top heavy for myself or our daughter. She's going to get her endorsement by next spring.

The dealer had received this bike the day before and they were just finishing up installing the bags and hand guards.

Looking forward to learning all I can.

Thanks. My dh's first bike was a Vulcan 800 Classic and he was always coming back with a grin from ear to ear. So, I asked him to take me to a parking lot and the rest is history.
