Hi from South Dakota/Kuwait

I'm a proud new owner of a 2009 Versys. My wife traded in my Buell Ulysess when I was in Iraq this summer; it was an electrical nightmare and had to go. Im glad to report at half the tq and 43 hp down, the Versys really impressed me. I had a chance to take it out over my leave at the end of November and loved every second of it. Being only 5'7" and 140lbs the Versys is a much better fit and I can actually touch the ground with both feet. I just orderd a set of happy trail SU racks and a pair of seahorse 720 cases but im still trying to decide on a rear rack and trunk. I'm looking forward to May when I can get back and go ride again and add more farkels to it.

Aaron

The wife did take the photos, I felt like a little kid asking if she'd go take a picture of me doing a wheelie. I was really suprised that cracking the throttle at 5k and pulling brings it up that easy. I hear the blue one has 5hp more than the other colors.
