Hey, welcome to the forum!
That was a nice looking Wee setup!
This is a great place to pick up info on the Versys, but not so great for unbiased opinions. I have a '92KLR and have ridden the Wee, so mine is a somewhat informed biased opinion.
So I've never been to West Virginia but I hear that it's fairly mountainous and that the roads are pretty twisty. If those are the roads you like to ride then you'll like the Vs.
Compared to the Wee (and the Killer) the handling is quite sporty. The motor has good snap, and tho it's not as smooth as the Wee, it's waay better than the Killer on the hiway. The bike has a pretty short wheelbase and would not be described as huge by any body who's ridden those bikes.
I ride the Versys off pavement quite a bit; yesterday a ride to the coast with about 20 miles of maintained gravel/dirt on a 220 mile round-trip ride. That's pretty typical.
Of course, if you are taking it off the pavement you may want to Armor-up a bit. It seems that you enjoy accessorizing your bike, and the Vs. great for that too.
My '09 before a trip early this summer. A few "improvements" since then!
