I'm all Versys :D Poland :)

Hello to Everybody,

sorry for not introducing myself just after registering. I was eager to get any info 'bout my new moto, that I have forgotten about the savoir vivre fundamentals .

Come from Poland. Just switched from SV650 to V after four years riding it (was my first motorcycle). The moto is still at the dealer but will get the plates next week latest and then I can get it . I will write more afterwards but I think it was a really good choice of mine . I want to try a little bit sport enduro bike to feel the difference. And ofcourse I would appreciate longer travel of suspension. Tia ... Polish roads. At the same time I count for same much fun as SV gave me.

See ya in two weeks I think.

Greetz from Poland,

ANDREW.

Yes, hello again. As promised - after my first ride I can tell it was a really good choice of mine Very handy motorcycle, everything is in place, almost perfect to me . I think the engine is strong enough for me. Maybe not SV like, but on the other hand more forseeable. Well the motorcycle is during brake-in so I cannot test the engin fully yet, we'll see later.

The suspension is OK. It has longer travel, however I need to make some adjustments from standard settings for Polish road conditions. I think the rebound damping is set too high.

The only "not nice" thing by now, I could name, is the the mirrors. Unfortunately they are vibrating much more then in SV. But I try to fix it somehow

I was afraid of having problems with reaching the ground with my feet. I put the lower seat gel, and it's OK. Even very OK

Well, what more to say now - my first ride was really great

Best regs,

ANDREW.

Andrew,
Welcome to the hood. I'm in Seattle and enjoy my Versys very much I'm sure you will as well. I still have my 2003 SV1000 silver naked. Just couldn't give it up. You certainly have made a fine choice . It really does everything very well. Have fun.

Hey Andrew, welcome to the site! How about snapping a few pictures of Poland while you're out riding around?

With pleasure. But need to wait some, cause we experience snow and ice currently. I'll wait couple of days for a nice weather (cold is not a problem, only water turnin' into ice ) and then I post some nice pictures

I'll let U know
