Finally Got My New Versys

Yup! I thought I bought a Japanese bike and it turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew? I think I'll get me a vanity plate that reads "bmblb" lol The break in thing with this bike is painful! 4K RPM's max for first 600 miles??? I'm making the engine chug instead of purring! It's a good thing this bike gives you patience. I must say I am impressed with how this bike just chugs along even under strain. I can feel the bike is very forgiving. It looks like I made the right choice.

I also just had my first service done. Yes- it's a painful 600 miles when she just wants to run, but you'll be there soon!
