Finally Get to Post!

Picked up my 2009 Versys yesterday. I've been looking and reading for a long time and I'm finally an owner of this great bike.

My bike history spans 12 years, during which I've owned an SV650S, CBR600F3, Yamaha R6, Suzuki Hayabusa (x2), and now the Versys. I was ready for a light, punchy, flickable steed to rack up some touring miles in the mountains. I think I've found the perfect machine.

I appreciate all the great info in these forums. Hopefully after I get to know her, I can contribute as well. Glad to be here.

P.S. Hopefully there is a picture attached to this post.

Congrats! I really like the Kawi green... i wanted it myself but the only V left at the dealer was red.

Is that like a warehouse, or just a really huge garage/workout room?

I went for a ride today, did about 160 miles. I know I'm going to shave the seat first, get rid of that slope. My first purchase is going to be the SW-Motech engine guard and some kind of highway bars. After that, luggage. My first distance trip on it will be next month. I can't wait!

It's my barn/shop out behind my house. I kind of use it for everything. My wife says I live out there.

Thanks. Ya, I dig the green, too. I drove six hours each way to get that color.
