First Week on the V

OMG, Got my 2009 Versys last week. I got to drive it to work all this week. Only a 60 mile round trip but what a week. All you guys were right, the best bike I have ever ridden. I was worried that the 650 was not enough power but after reading all the post before I got the V, once again you guys were right. Thanks to all the post, I jumped in. Beats the heck out of the Honda Shadow I put up with all these years. O yea, Got to ride it in a heavy thunderstorm today, handled very well. Funny thing.. While I stopped to put on the rain gear, a Harley Guy drove by and yelled Chicken. But I passed him on the road pulled over, very wet.haha I might add. Of course I was dry..

Sold my Suzuki C50 (Very comparable to a Shadow) last year and bought the Versys. No regrets. Been a blast ever since!
