Newbie in TX

Greetings.

Just traded in an '08 KLR for a "new" 09 V that was still on the showroom floor. I kept on old '01 KLR for when I get the urge to ride the dirt.

Looking forward to riding the V but need to do some tweaks first. Up front is a seat change and footpeg lowering kit to give me some more leg room (6'4" with 36" inseam makes the V pretty cramped as is).

It sure looks like the V will be a fun bike.

Here's mine the day I brought it home.

I am new here as well. Joined a few weeks back and bought an '09 Versys this past Saturday.
I have been riding 30 years and all manner of bikes. I think the V might become my all-time favorite.
It is a blast and I hope you enjoy your as much as I do mine (already).

Congratulations, and Happy Riding !

The motowerk lowering kit will also help with the leg relief on long trips:
