First Ride in Over 25 years

Last street experience was on XR650L. Been doing dirt -bikes and quads. At 56, wanted something nimble and do-it-all versatility. Considered Honda NC700X, Ducati 796 and even researched building my own motard/supermoto. The Versys was the closest factory ready ride to suit. Must say I enjoy riding again.

The Versys was also my "re-entry" bike after a 15 year hiatus. You (and I) made an excellent choice!

My 08 was my first bike in over 20 years too. Your post and the responses here inspired me to submit a new thread with a poll asking if your first Versys was a re-entry bike, Take the poll.
