New ride

Hey all,

Just picked up a used 2008 Versys in red last week.



It came with the nice Happy Trails luggage, LED lights and engine guards. So far I've put on a set of Double Take Mirrors and wired up a GPS.

I'm really happy with it. It sure has plenty of power compared to my KLR.
I plan on taking the lowering link out to raise it back up, new handlebars and a set of hand guards soon.

Well done! I supposed I'm biased but the 2008 red version is the best of the breed. I wonder why I say that? LOL



Enjoy it and have many, many safe miles.
