2nd Day with my 2010 Versys

Hi all,
Just bought a black 2010 Versys a couple days ago and i'm glad i made the choice to get the V.

First i'll introduce myself. My name is Rick (Western NY)and i've been riding dirtbikes since i was probably 8, and this spring decided to expand my 2 wheeled adventures to the street... got to use my uncles Rebel to take the road test, and have been "riding" a ZZR 1200 since (not mine)...Been looking at bikes for probably 2 months now, found a 500 ninja that i liked. Went to the dealer only to find out the bike had JUST sold. I had driven an hr and 40 mins to ride a bike so i was pissed. My father inquired about a Mule and i looked at the other used bikes and noticed a Black Versys (which i'd never seen before in black). So all in all i ended up test riding it, loved it, and a few days later she's sitting in my driveway The bike was lowered by the previous owner, and apparently he trades in his bike every year for something different so it only had 3k miles on it.
Got a deal on the aftermarket gel seat (which is nice but i get the feeling it's designed for someone taller than me). Anyways here she is:



(sorry about the crappy pics, had to take them with the phone b/c my digital camera apparently didn't like being left in the glove box for 6 months)

Congrats on the new ride, you made a great choice. Not a lot of the 2010's around, so you got a pretty unique bike.
