Newbie

Hi All,

I'm new to riding, just bought my first bike (Honda CBR125) in May and had a great summer of riding. CBR was a great learning bike but it's now time to upgrade. My boyfriend has a 09 Versys and he just bought a BMW so we're going to lower his Versys for me to ride. This forum has been a great reference with regard to his bike as we'll need a lowering kit and a lower gel seat....I have a 28inch inseam.

Any other suggestion are welcomed and greatly appreciated

Forget the lowering kit. Just get proper boots.
