Another one from AZ

New to the forum. Been lurking for a few days and decided to join. I am in the process of finding my new (used) V. I used to ride Motocross in my teens but, have not been back on a bike since. I'm excited to get back on two wheels. The wife finally relented and said it was okay. I will be mostly commuting but, will also hit a lot of dirt especially during the Quail season down hear...now I just need to figure out how I can take my dog on the V with me

Thanks to all for the info provided so far. I am sure I will have more questions as the time passes...as in has anyone seen a good used 08-09 for sale under $5000?

Welcome aboard Desert Dog. There are a lot of very knowledgeable folks on this forum and I suspect, collectively,they've (we've) done just about everything possible to the Versys and have very helpful info to share with you. You only have to ask.

BTW, choose an '08 red one if you can. They're the best and they taste good too!

Welcome Desert Dog, if you can find a orange one they are very reliable and fast.

Welcome Desert Dog. I almost thought my husband was writing instead of you. You both sound like you enjoy the same activities. Our quail dog (Blk Lab) is too old to get out anymore. I have a red '08 V and love it. If you're in the Phx area, look us up. My husband rides a K75 BMW. You won't see many other V's around that's kinda nice. Good Luck!
