returning rider so impressed by versys
i want to introduce myself.
i'm a returning rider with a recently acquired msf card and a newly minted license from the great state of new york.
(i haven't ridden in 25+ years)
i'm 6'1''/191lbs (lost 23lbs during the past 12 months!) with a 32.5" inseam.
i'm looking for a bike to do some light commuting, and the occasional saturday/sunday morning jaunt up/down the hudson river valley/northeast.
and so i found myself at a local kawasaki dealer.
the 650r was nice but with a wee bit too much of a forward lean.
i very much liked the seating position of the er6n. odd looking bike but i liked.
and then i sat on an orange and black 2012 versys.
was i so impressed with the sit up and beg seating, the view from the riding position, the pull from the 650 engine.
man, i need to find $8k or something used.
anyone in the nyc metro area riding a versys?
