New Versys Owner

After joining the forum 4 years ago, I finally got around to buying my first Versys from fellow member Bear on a Bicycle.

Talking

No buyer's remorse here. Reminds me a lot of my TDM850, (but the Verysys has a suspension that works.)

Got the suspension sorted out, easy peazy.

Yeppers, painted the rad covers black and the rear frame covers black, then took off the silver bottom engine guard so one can appreciate the headers and exhaust. Slapped on some Zeta Handguards (couldn't help myself after primarily dual sportin off-road for the last 10 years) and ordered some used IMS footpegs off of Ebay.

The stable:
In Jalisco, Mexico my Plated Dual Sport XR650R..





Sold last year, the '03 Plated Dual Sport KLX400R (DRZ400E)



Sold 2010, the '93 TDM 850..







The Versys fits in just fine for my needs,

Looks like a successful attempt to me! And in 48 hours from this moment, you'll be free to post anywhere on the forum you like. By the way, I answered your email this morning.
