New Guy, again lol.

So with the happenings in the forum recently, my posts (and account) was wiped out. So I'm back to try this again.

The quick rundown of the first time I did this. I've spent my life on sportbikes going too fast and dragging the occasional knee at track days and such. Honestly I no longer have much interest in that with a wife and two young kids at home. I'm looking towards some light travel and general sport touring, however I'm also not a fan of typical sport tourers. I have a super moto now that is fun to ride, relatively comfortable, but gets so little miles from a full tank.

So I think at the moment I've settled on either a Versys or maybe a Vstrom, the Versys appears to be a little sportier so its currently in the lead.

Thanks for having me!

The Versys is a great balance of touring and sporty performance. My buddy has a ZX-06 and he'd smoke me in any serious competition, but when we're just riding for fun, he's surprised at how well the Versys keeps up. It's no slouch, and a hell of a lot more comfortable after 6-7 hours of riding than any sport bike.
