New to motorcycles - questions!
I'm Ed from San Diego/Flagstaff (NAU).
I'm looking at buying my first bike in a month or so, and I've been heavily leaning towards a 2012 Versys. The only other bike I've been thinking about is the Suzuki V-Strom. I like the standard ABS and V-Twin engine on the Strom, but I feel like the Versys might be a little better suited for what I'm doing.
I don't plan on touring, and I want a light(er) bike that is still sporty for commuting or weekend fun. I sat on a 2011 V-Strom today and it feels pretty bulky. I was looking at the Ninja 650, but I like the slightly more upright style the Versys provides. I won't be doing any aggressive riding, or super crazy cornering. I just want a nice bike, good value, and I feel as if the Versys delivers.
Any thoughts or advice?
