New owner First impressions

I picked up a new 2011 Versys about 3 weeks ago. I sold my Buell Ulysses about 3 years ago when my 2nd boy was born and while spending time with him has been great, I was getting grumpy without my weekly therapy rides.

So far the bike has been great and I got a great deal on a 2011 since there was a new 2012 next to it on the showroom.

The only thing I can nitpick so far is the buzzy dash and the lack of information on the display screen. I wish you could have a clock, odo and trip on the screen at the same time. Now I just need to find the time to ride!

Welcome Skully. I got a pretty good deal on my 2011 back in November but not as good as I'm sure you got. Glad you're back in the saddle.

as weljo says, doing a "titles only" search on "buzz", you'll be as informed as they come, and be able to make an intelligent decision... I wouldn't do it any other way personally.

enjoy!
