New TN Person

I'm from Knoxville, TN. Got '09 versys new back in Aug 2010, bought it in Alcoa. It is my first bike, and I love it. I've put 7k on it since. I primarily ride through the Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park. I did the Dragon once, at roughly 40mph...

I picked it because I am 6'8'' and I didn't feel cramped on it. I love the look even more than I did before now.

I've been lurking these forums for months now, reading people's technical suggestions and performance upgrades threads. Thought I'd say hi. Hi.

I sure have noticed more Versys in the area since trading in my green one. If either of you guys are interested in a set of green rim decals let me know. I can mail them to you. Free of charge.

Welcome Aboard! Looks like you had a good time on the Dragon.

Hey 865 Green, if you really want to get rid of those, I'd gladly take them off your hands.

Sorry, just looked back over that- is that a TN offer? No toe stepping here..
