New Guy on the block

New to the forum here.....from the Raleigh, NC area. Trying to figure out this system for posting....looks like I have to post twice here, wait 48 hrs, take two aspirin, and call back in the morning.

Anyway, picked up a gently used 2008 red Versys about a year ago and for the life of me can't come up with any good reasons yet to get rid of it. Great bike. As soon as the forum cops let me post I've got a couple of videos to put up from a recent ride around the Roanoke, VA area.

Kmac and just wait it out to post some pictures. meanwhile you can post here and you need something like 5 post here before you are allowed to post elsewhere.

Hey Kmac250,

Hit me up whenever you want to do some riding around, I'm also in Raleigh, and I have the same exact bike as you do. We might have to wait for this crazy heat wave to do some decent riding.

Thanks again for the warm welcomes...especially from Peppino in good ol Rawley NC (it's been 100+ in Raleigh for the last several days with a couple more to come!).

Peppino & Capn Kirk,
Glad to find some "locals". We'll definitely try to catch some rides together. I actually garage my bike at our family farm about an hour west of Raleigh out in a nice rural area and ususally get up there most weekends. Great riding out there away from traffic. The company I work for has a plant in Roanoke so I get up there periodically and will usually trailer up the Versys or my KLX250S and go riding with some of my associates.

I'll try this weekend to see if the forum police will take me off probation and let me post some pics and videos from a ride I took with around Roanoke a few weeks back.

Later...
