New Verys Owner Camby, Indiana (INDY)

Hi All,
I just picked up a 2008 Red Versys from another member. I rode it home over 120 miles. Great bike! I just had to watch the speed since I had my plate from my other bike on it.
I have wanted a Versys since they came out. The first time I sat on one in Dreyer Kawasaki, I thought, this bike fits me just perfect. And it is good to be back on a Kaw.
I have had a 2002 Suzuki DR650 for the past 5 years. It is really set up nice. But I seldom venture off road and wanted something a bit more street worthy, but still likes the bumpy, skinny, southern Indiana twisties.
I have been riding since the late '70s. Mostly dual-sport bikes with a Ninja and a Vulcan thrown in there.
I am the administrator at One of our members there had a really sweet Versys and that pushed me further this way. He has sold his Versys and went more dirt with the DR. If anybody is interested in a nice DR650 let me know. I only have the funds for one bike in the corral.
Look forward to learning from you all!

Dennis, used to have a blue DR 500 back around 1984, used to have to do a lot of work to line up for one kick and if you flooded it she could be a real female dog but it was a great bike and used it all around south island of NZ.

The DR is a great dual-sport bike and actually a pretty amazing street bike in the twisties. A lot of SuperMoto conversions of them out there.
I wanted something a little more street oriented and found it.
I am the now the owner of Ranger_Racer's 2008 Versys.

I picked it up last Saturday. Great bike! The only thing I had to do was lube the clutch cable.
I hope our weather warms/drys again so I can get some quality riding in.
