Hello from Moscow

Just got the Yellow 2010 Versys from unsold stock, it really makes me smile!

A sales person said that starting from 2011 all V are produced in Thailand but mine should be from Japan, very interesting...

The most difficult thing is to follow the rules of a proper break-in so limiting rpm at 4-5K.

And thanks everyone for the great forum with tons of useful details!

Regards,
-igor

You Russan folks are a hardy lot. My hat's off to you for being able to live in the cold so many months of the year. If you ever get to Texas I'd be proud to treat you to some BBQ and cold beer. Congrats on your your new ride.

Welcome from Canada. Since we live in a similar climate I just wanted to mention heated gear for early spring and late fall riding if you are not already familiar with it. I just discovered it this past year for spring and fall riding (13C to -2C). If I knew it was as good as it is I would have gotten it a long time ago. Looking forward to seeing your videos.

@twowheels Thanks! Heated gears are great especially on long rides. I did enjoy a 500 km ride last October even though it was around 0C all the time... The low temperature is not a stopper, but snow
