Hello from the eastern part of Central Texas!

Or is it the western part of East Texas? Oh well, it's a big state.

Anyway...

Hello from the Bryan/College Station/Brazos Valley area of TX. I just puchased a new 2009 Versys about 20 hours ago, and then spent the bulk of last night reading and learning from this forum. Even though it will be a while before I can add anything here, I figured I should at least join.

We also have a Can-Am Spyder that we use when my wife and I want to ride together. The Versys however is just for when I want or need to ride alone. So far, in just the amount of time riding the Versys last evening and this morning, I'm liking it a lot. Well, not the seat so much, but everything else is pretty good so far.

regards,
Caladan

We live in S. College Station. Was the Spyder you had seen a white one? We've only seen one other Spyder in Bryan, which is a white one owned by a young guy who now needs to sell it. Ours is black and metallic orange, and so far is the only Spyder that we have seen in College Station.

I'll try to get pics up in the next few days....

Hmm, I'm pretty sure it wasn't white but not sure if it was was the black model w/ accent colors or the black and silver... I only saw it a couple of times on 1179 in Bryan and that was probably a year ago at least.
