New V rider in Raleigh NC
Purchased a used 2008 red Versys in May in excellent conditions that a college student did not need anymore, and he sold thru his local maintenance shop. Paid $4000 for it with 4,775 miles on it, LoJack, and an extended warranty till the end of 2012 included in the deal.
I was personally not looking for a bike, but always browsed the local Craigslist to see what was on sale until I saw the V, I think I got stung because I bought it without even riding it or telling my wife. Well I'm alive (wife did not kill me), and enjoying the bike, already has some 600+ miles I added, and I do not regret it. Also have an old KLX 650 that it has been taken apart for over a year, and plan to finish it this summer.
This site helped with the decision to purchased (maybe 10%) but this bike is awesome, and it sold by itself. Looking to install some mods that I've read in here, and maybe enjoy some rides with members.
