De-lurking

My status has officially switched from lurker to Versys owner as of about 2 hours ago. Just picked up a brand, spankin' new '11.

Have ridden dirt bikes since the late 60s/early 70s and got my first plated bike a couple years ago - a KLR650. Thought I'd do a lot more gravel/dirt than I did on it. Discovered it was a great, essentially bulletproof bike, but it's NOT a dirt bike.

The Versys is going to suit me a lot better, I'm sure. Pouring rain on and off here in central NC today, so I'm going to have to try to get 500 miles in tomorrow...

Wouldn't have been on a trailer today other than the fact that I had to haul another bike to the dealer. And the fact that I think we got about 30-40" of rain in the three hour span it took to get out there and back.

Plus, it's a friend's trailer...

Thanks!

I'm guessing your signature needs to be my tentative shopping list.

Of the ones they've produced, I think I like this paint more than the rest followed by the black.
