Tom Edison has his Versys

Picked up my 2011 Versys today, with 3,700 miles it's like new.
It was waiting in a corner all most ready



My riding buddy had to help mount the temp paper plate underneath
a modulating light bar that was on the ride, along with an helmet lock
and gps mount on the handle bar. I had brought along the stock round mirrors off my KLX250S and we installed them also.





we got it out into the rainy [email protected] Issquah I'90 Motorsports.
After a 121 mile back roads route hope I'm really happy with the agile
Versys.






It was wet and cold but my Gerbings heated vest made all the difference.
This will be my street ride for a while with some light dirt. All the info on
this forum has been a big help deciding to go with the Versys.

Ride while you can

Great Choice. Nice to see your pics.

My wife got me new Gerbings heated gloves for Christmas. I need to list my older ones, size XXL, which are about 5 year old.

I have some pics of my '09 Versys on my website, when my computer is on.

Enjoy many warm and sunshiny days of riding, plus whatever you get in the PNW.

Nice. I was at a shop yesterday and saw a guy trailering his new bike to take home. I just about volunteered to ride it home for him.

I was glad to see your pictures where the water was liquid. It has suddenly cooled off significantly here. We had some good weather but woke up today to less than 20F kind of temperatures. I guess I will commute in the car tomorrow. (Of course, I have only about two weeks of working left - unless the nuclear weapons business picks up around here... Not that is wasn't my choice.)

Congratulations on your new ride. Love the pix of the bike standing in the rain, highly representative of the weather up here right now. You will definitely enjoy riding in your area, lots of roads to ride that are fun.
