NorCal Newbie!

Hi Guys,

Not new to motorcycling, but new to the Versys. I just added a 2011 to an empty spot next to my 2005 GSXR1K. I'm really enjoying the upright seating position, legroom, and punchy motor!

The V is still stock, but I'll be frequenting the archives for modifications for sure. Just bought an EvoTech radiator guard this morning. More to come.

Here's a pic of me after my first 10 miles.

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys.

I live in the East Bay (El Cerrito) and can be found in west Marin most Sunday mornings. On the lookout for a rideout.......

Well, I tried to reply to the Norcal Rides thread, but I'm not allowed for some reason. I'll follow it and post up a ride when admin gives me permission.

My favorite quick weekend rides are west Marin and Lake Berryessa area. I also like to do fall rides in the 84/Skyline/Pescadero area.

Let's ride!

Welcome, Frisco. I'm in the south bay. We'll keep the nor cal thread active. Most of the group rides I do originate on SBR. Check it out.
