New 2011 owner, former SV owner

Well I still own both...but trying to get rid of the SV.

Just bought a new 2011 Versys last Friday. Its my 2nd bike. I had originally wanted a Versys when I was looking for my first, but I was pushed towards the SV650 (which is a great beginner bike). After realizing the SV was very uncomfortable and wasn't going to get better, I sought out a test ride on a Versys and fell in love!

Looking to get some Pelicans mounted and other goodies and ride the hell out of it!

Lotsa good stuff on here, welcome to the Forum! My son just got an SVS- god knows how takes the torture, but y'know, he's young.

Thanks guys. I rode my bike to and from work for the first time yesterday, and due to traffic took surface streets back. Man I love this bike!! I ride it like a supermoto on the streets but can just sit back and cruise on the highway.

It's amazing to me how this bike feels much lighter than my SV but is 20-30lbs heavier. The balance is crazy.
