New member, new Versys

Hi -

Just bought a 2011 Versys (red) and have been enjoying my first bike in 28 years.

And following what appears to be a tradition with a new Versys, I dropped mine in my gravel driveway as I was moving into position to park. ARGH!

Broke the right front footpeg as well as the plate it mounts to, as well as snapping the end off the front brake lever.

$160 for the replacement parts, which is a little less than 25% of the cost of my first motorcycle!

Plenty will tell you that at least you got the drop out of the way early so should be all good from now on . After 28 years must be good to get back in the saddle.

and look where you want to go and you wont fall down. Don't lose sight of your intended point and dont look down at the front wheel.Always keep sight far ahead-IMHO.
