Hi from a wannabe

Hi guys and gals,

I am originally from Bulgaria, but have been living in Boston, MA for 12 years now. Love bikes, travels, music, books and anything that has something to with them. Enough about me.
Now, why am I here? I test rode a Versys the other day and I am hooked! Badly! I would have to find one, hopefully from a member here. I have owned quite a few bikes, but currently I have a 2002 Concours, 2002 Ural with sidecar, 1972 Honda CB175 and a project 1972 CB750. I would be willing to trade the Ural or the Concours for a Versys.

Best to all,
Pete

Send a message via Skype™ to kiwi 41
and a test ride is all you need to get hooked. You should be able to get a good deal over there on a 2nd hand versys.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Ural with the sidecar is A LOT of fun, but I am ready to move on.

Cheers,
Pete

Yes, they are! I wish I had one of them:-) I will get a Versys soon, but I will stick with my CB175. It is such a fun bike to ride. Especially after I have ridden the Concours;-0 It feels like toy. Cops around here wave at me and smile when I blast by them with 20 over the speed limit. Try that with a sport bike.

Cheers,
Pete

Old enough to know what's right, but young enough not to choose it.
