new Versys owner
new 2009 versys owner here.
I'm definitely not new to motorcycling, having owned over 100 motorcycles, and roadracing or supermoto since 1997. i traded my Ducati multistrada 1000 for the versys, and besides a lack of power, i'm not disappointed at all. of course theres the typical complaints for a budget bike.... seat, bars, etc.... but those can all be rectified in short order. its seems to be a very nimble bike, as far as street machinery goes, but i'm dumping the stock tires almost immediately for some Bridgestone BT003's. i have enough tire money from winning races this season to order them up free of charge, so why not put some sticky stuff on and scrape some pegs!!!!!
anyways, i'm in the Janesville, WI area...... and hope to be able to offer some info in some way at some point in time.
