Smile Helloo from Erin, Canada= New member/Owner 09

First of I want to say thanks.
For my first bike Ever I was torn between the Versys and the KLR.
Trolling through the net, I stumbled upon this Site. You guys/ gals are great.
The honest advice and help plus a great bike package in the Versys stamped the deal.

Got my license,bought my bike, picked up my bike May 24th and I have loved putting on the stuff to protect my new addition to the household.
I have been riding to work once a week and getting more comfortable.
Push steering is just great in the V
Speedy's lowering is also super
My kids think she kinda looks like an alien, but they want me to name her Lucy or Susan. Not sure!!!!!
The guys at work are not sure what to make of her, but heck that's part of her appeal. She's a beauty to me!!!!
Sorry for the long intro- hopefully I will become a proficient rider in the years to come and can give to the Versys group.

Greetings

Thanks to you all for the warm greetings.
Looks like there are fellow V riders closer then I thought.
I have seen a newer red model in Guelph, I had the biggest grin when the gent passed me,,,,,,made me miss mine at home!!

Once I am a better rider we should definitely meet up to ride and talk shop(all things V)
I would not want to slow any one down.

As far as I know I've only seen one or two other Versys her in Kingston, although the dealer tells me he's consistently sold 2 or 3 every year.
Welcome to the forum. You'll find everything you need and more.

BTW, I too used to ride a KLR and almost bought an 08 before the V. I've never regretted the decision. If you do more street riding than trail, it's the best allrounder out there.
