From TB area....

Hi from Tampa Bay area. Just picked up a 2016 650 from a local dealer and I have been really impressed with the lack of vibration and the gearing seems well suited for all types of riding. This is the smallest motorcycle I've owned in many years but I am enjoying it more and more. I have installed a GPS mount and a 12 volt power outlet/dual USB outlet/voltmeter panel under the dash, a tail bag and raised the front of the seat.
Ride safe, Sparcpro

Hi from the Ocala National Forest! And one of the reasons I moved up here was to get away from all that traffic in the Tampa Bay area. The Versys was supposed to be my "back-up" bike -- but then I wrecked my 2007 Electra Glide and the Versys is now my main bike. What color is your bike?

Welcome aboard from a one-time Tampa resident (1985-88 while assigned at MacDill AFB). Enjoy your "little" bike and ride safely.

I remember more than a few "shouldn't be driving" senior citizens trying to put me and my BMW R100CS on their hoods as an ornament. Ah, the joys of sharing the road with the "waiting for God" crowd.
