Hi all, just registered tonite. Bought my 2011 Versys in April and will be turning 1000 miles very soon. I'm a member of a very good UK Versys Forum but discovered this one by accident so thought I might get a different slant on things from what seems to be a more 'global' site. As for me, gave up big fours last year after 20 years or so and fancied a different pace and style. Very pleased with mine so far and I think it'll be around for a fair while. Here's a few pics - since they were taken the rear pegs have been removed along with all that trellis work that goes with it. Mirrors are KTM Duke items, screen has been removed and a tail tidy and a hugger have been fitted. Hope you like..!

The red wheel striping looks great on the black bike.

Thanks Weljo - took a bit of patience but the result was worth it. As an aside, is this generally a US site...?

Welcome to the forum. If you have any pictures with the pegs and other stuff taken off I'd be interested to see them as I only ever ride 1-up.
Cheers from Canada

There are mainly US members here but also a lot of us from different parts of the world which makes it a pretty cool site.

That looks pretty neat 'Bob - I'll put further pics of my naked V up when I've downloaded from the camera.

Thanks for that link. I like the look. Will have to try taking some stuff off soon. Might look too bare without a hugger but it doesn't cost anything to give it a try.

Hey V-Coaster - I'm putting some pics in 'cosmetic mods' section later this evening. You'll be able to see what the 2011 V looks like without pegs....
