Just wandered in........

Hello all,

Names Ian, live in Oxfordshire England.

Got a new 2011 Versys with all the touring kit and planning to commute, tour, and generally get out there on it.

Had sportbikes before this, so enjoying a bit more of a civilsed riding position

Pics as requested

Here we go :





Before you ask? I always put the ninja eyes on the screens of my other Ninja Sports bikes, so have put them on this one - as it does seem to still have a bit of a Ninja in there somewhere

Welcome and nice bike. Like particularly the wind shield and the EYES. Did u made the EYES yourself?

I've got a MRA Vario windshield, similar to yours with the extra flip shield but your's look much nicer and taller too.

Present Ride: Yamaha Super Tenere 2012
Previous Ride:
2011 to 2015 2011 Versys Spark BlackKawasaki Ninja 2010 to 2011 250R 2008 Plasma Blue

Cheers got the EYEs off of a UK decal website [www.bikedecals.co.uk] they are Carl Foggarty eyes ''Foggy'' and you will find them if you have alook through the site.
