Welcome Bill. You'll love it. Rode my V1000 today in this beautiful 100 degree Texas sun.

Welcome from New Braunfels just down I-35 from you. Not actually there now because it's too hot. Won't return from Maine until the end of October when it won't be quite so warm and we can ride without melting into the pavement.

Howdy Bill.

Seems folks are in the down size mode around here. I am about to go from a KTM 1190 adventure to a used 2015 Versys 650.

Before that I too had a Connie 14 and a Ninja 1000. Also an FZ09.

Guess I am starting to feel my age and thinner wallet of retirement.

Welcome aboard and good luck with the new ride.

Cheers.

Signed the papers

Signed the papers yesterday on my new 2017 Versys 650 LT. Dealer is getting the black one for me but I test rode the one he had and I like it. No wind buffet which I was concerned about with smaller screen. They are installing the LED light bar, dc outlet and grip heaters for me. Under 10k out the door with accessories added and installed so I am happy with that...Bill

A Good Deal

Grip heaters are good, hopefully you didn't get the Kawi ones, if you did, change them to Oxford or others, since the bike is on order you should be able to change it. Some really good posts on heated grips on this forum, I have the Oxford ones. The ones Weljo2001 just got are very attractive and I would have considered them had they been available when I got my bike.http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...t=heated+grips
