New guy in Va.

Bought a new 2011 Versys yesterday. Test rode it 3 different times before pulling the trigger.

I'm coming off a 2004 sv650 and it is quite a change going from a v twin to a parallel twin. The versys is a little more vibe-y but a lot more comfortable to ride!

Anyone looking for a used sv650 with less than 6000 miles

Any way.. Glad to be here!

Sean

I have an Uncle in Staunton and just moved my grandmother from Waynesboro down here to a nursing home. I have many fond memories of visiting Waynesboro & Staunton.

Greetings, and just out of curiosity how much do you want for the sv650, I know some one who might be interested.


Those who say money can't buy happines haven't bought A VERSYS.

Hey tommy, congrats to you also on the new bike.. I'm jealous of that new yellow and black color scheme. I got a good deal on the '11 or i would have hunted down a bike like yours!



thanks again to everyone!
