New rider in OK...

After LOTS of research, discussion with a friend, and lurking on here I bought my first motorcycle last week, a 2012 Versys. The dealership had kitted it out with luggage, tail bag, taller screen, 12v outlet, hand guards, etc. a few months back, but it hadn't sold yet. I liked the yellow color and they were eager to get rid of the bike without unloading the extras (only charged cost on the accessories!). Sure was nice of us to find each other!
I like the Versys for its role as a commuter and the possibilities to move me down the occasional packed dirt road. (I like to go backpacking from time to time.) Right now I am enjoying getting to know the bike and looking forward to my riders safety course next week.

Here's to many happy miles together!

Like the Yellow trim of the 2012 models. Nice windshield, wish I can find those. Also noticed the side tank scratch protectors, it's difficult to find these things.

The Kawasaki supplied panniers sticks out more than the Givi version, so a minor downside if needing to lane split.

Thanks guys...
Being 6'8" the taller windshield seemed like must.
I shouldn't have to be reminded about gear... my uncle had a "meeting" with a deer on the highway a few years ago. He has lost some of his sense of taste, but it would have been MUCH worse without his helmet and jacket.
