Finally decided on a bike - Not the Versys
I have been a lurker here for a while. I kind od sat in the shadows and absorbed the knowledge that is passed on here. I finally decided on a bike and got the V-strom 650 ABS / Pearl white. I really liked both bikes but it came down to several things
1: The V-strom was more comfortable for my wife. Most important reason.
2: The v-strom has ABS
3: The V-strom will run on 8regular fuel (although I see on here that some have run the Versys on 87 as long as it does not ping). This would not have been a deal breaker.
I have been researching bikes for about 3 years and was driving my wife and co-workers crazy. As soon as I decided that the V-strom was the bike I wanted, my wife went and bought me one. What a great lady.
I will continue to read the forums and will try to contribute when appropriate. Thanks to all who provided me with their insight when I first joined.
