Well i finally bit the Bullet and traded my '03 Voyager XII for and '08 Blue Versys. I've been riding for 21 yrs and presently have an '03 KLR 650 which will probably become my Son's travel bike next summer. I have seen on this sight references to how much you should pay for a used Versys??? I, learning first hand with my Voyager will advise to keeping the market strong for these Bikes. If they are as good as all the reviews they should, but, for an example. The Voyager cost $26,000 cdn in '03. I paid $12,000 1 1/2 yrs later and was lucky to get a straight across trade for a Versys in '08. To me that is Robbery of a Beautiful bike (it is MINT SHOWROOM! Condition)but, was way more cleaning after a ride than I cared for and the "Queen" doesn't like to ride that often to warant the Luxo Liner. I wil be getting it next Tuesday, so, there is going to be a couple of sleepless nights I'm sure! So when I get it I will finish registering and submit some pics of my New Girl! I hope I didn't come across too negative, regarding my trade in, but, I don't understand who or what dictates the trade in value of a Bike and have never been able to. Oh! Well! I'm a "V" owner NOW!
