Greetings

Hello everybody, and welcome to my introductory thread. Yesterday, I became the proud owner of a black and yellow 2012 Kawasaki Versys. Seeing as I spent many hours on this forum, I thought it would be appropriate for me to join when I got my bike. Here's a little bit about me:

I live in beautiful, and currently very cold, Layton, Utah with my parents. I'm currently a freshman at Weber State University, and I am currently planing to major in Anthropology. I work at Walmart full-time, which pays for my school and bike. This Versys is my first bike, so I'm still learning how to ride and fix it. I have my hand guards and crash bars in the mail, and plan on getting saddlebags in the future. I'm looking forward to meeting some cool people and maybe going on some rides when it warms up.

Welcome. In Sandy here, dying for spring. Utah has so much good riding, and you have the ideal bike to rack up some miles.

Went on a little 50-mile ride through Trappers Loop today after work. Cold as hell, but still super fun. Here are some pics, as requested.

If you are looking for some cold weather riding gear, check out Gerbing Gear. It works well, heats up great, and it will keep you toasty warm on the cold cold days. It is also rain resistant so even if you get caught out in a storm you will stay dry and warm inside.

I like that color scheme somthing fierce, I might have to get mine painted!

Welcome :-)

Traveled out to Zion National Park back in 2010 and couldn't get over how beautiful the scenery is. The only thing missing was on that trip my Versys....
Hope I get a chance to ride out there some day.
Enjoy your new bike!!

Welcome!

Do you get employee discounts for buying stuff at WalMart? There's a specific WalMart oil filter that many V riders swear by it, and it comes cheap too.

I love shopping at WalMart at 1am when there's less crowd during my college years.
