Versys 09 Green in Socal

Hi there!

Just bought from Versus09_Matt his beautiful green Versys and I cant wait to go pick it up in San Luis Obispo next week. I previously owned a V-Strom 650, still own a V-Strom 1000 and was looking for a similar do it all ( the only real type of bike IMHO) but in a lighter and nimbler version, to go canyon carving as we have plenty of them in the San Gabriel mountains north of L.A. Voila! I am happy as can be to join this forum and share experience with you guys and most likely with the Socal Versys group.
Cheers
Bruno

Good call cybird! My last ride was a Wee Strom 09 but my new Versys is way more fun on the twisties. I just did a day trip up to Whistler and past about 200 miles total and mostly curves and twisties and it was a blast. Sounds like you're in great country for a V

This is not fair! You got to buy a great bike at a great price AND get to go to the Central Coast to get it! That's just not fair!! LOL. But seriously, congratulations on the new bike and what I am sure will be a great ride home.

Thank you all for your kind words. I do believe this is a sweet deal I couldnt pass as I was into buying the V but couldnt afford a brand new one. And yes I am looking forward to own it fully on the way back to LA. My next purchase will be a set of Conti attack. I had them on the FZ1 and they will make the bike even easier to flick right and left. Will post more on this first "trip" with riding impressions...expect a big grin!
