New V rider in KC
Hi all! I bought my green 09' Versys with 6k miles about 2 months ago and couldn't be happier with it. This is my 3rd bike but the first two were pretty old (78' GS and a 84' Nighthawk - still have it for now) and not very reliable so I'm really cutting my teeth with the V. I'm kinda tall (6'3") and needed a bike that was tall enough for me, but I'm on the skinny side so I didn't wanna deal with some 1500cc behemoth, so it's been perfect. The bike is stock right now but I'm planning on getting panniers for camping and long trips. I'm leaning towards the Happy Trails Teton setup, any thoughts? I also need a bigger windscreen as the stock one is pretty much useless at speed for my height.
Anyone on here in the KC area? I haven't seen another V on the road yet so it would be cool to ride with one sometime.
The forum has been a great help so far so I figured I better start posting so I can ask some questions in some other threads. Bye for now!
