New Rider with '11 Versys

Hello all,

I just bought a 2011 Versys as my first street motorcycle.

First things first. How do I get rid of that ridiculous license plate holder that looks like a tail?

Looking forward to learning from you folks.

Or, so that the next owner (yes, it will happen !) has a unmolested bike, this..........http://www.evotech-performance.eu/in...liminator.html. Otherwise known as the slightly more expensive option, but ain't they worth it ?

Good luck exploring the infinite abyss

Thanks everyone.

Btw, CJBrown, I love the black bike. I figure once I scratch up the maroon on mine, I'll be going for an all black look.

Dude, it's not maroon. It's imperial red metalflake! LOL!

I guess you shoulda found a '10 leftover.

There is a tail tidy for the Versys if you are so inclined.

As you can see, I kinda like the color.

As a Virginia Tech alum, I also like the color. Hopefully I'll never drop it and therefore never have to make that choice. I would like to paint all the silver plastics black, though.

Has anyone just removed some of those plastic covers? Does it look okay without them?
