New Versys Owner in Canada

Hi All

Just picked up my new 07 'Burnt Orange' Versys. I live on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, Canada. The roads up here are twisty, very scenic, but also kinda rough. Many start out paved and end of gravel or hard-packed dirt.

Perfect for the Versys!

I've come from a sporty-bike background (FZ1, VFR CBR600, etc) and I'm quite happy with the power and handling of this bike. Just enough power for grins, but not too much to put you behind bars. An added bonus, insurance is cheaper and I get better milage!

I'm impressed so for with the forum lots of information and helpful posts.

Lets Ride!
Smitty

Welcome! Looks like great riding up on the Island. I've been around there alot, in-laws have camps on Mindemoya Lake. I've never been up with the bike yet, but I plan to!

Always trust your cape.

Welcome to the forum. I am in Nova Scotia. I have had my V for a whole week now. Your right, its a great bike for the twisty roads.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Welcome from another Burnt Orange 07 in Canada

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.
