New versys 650lt

Good morning and happy Sunday. My name is Gary. Go by grease or Greasy. That a long story. Last weekend I took the plunge and bought a new versys. I rode it for 200 miles Thursday and loved ever Minute of it. I havemainly rode Harley's the last 10 years and I am quite impressed with this bike.

I have been reading reviews on it. I fixed a little kz440 for around town this winter. Bent exhaust valves. I ha e to put a clutch and tires on it. Rode it about 1000 miles and it is a fun bike. Made me really want this versys.

Thank you in advance. Gary

Welcome aboard. I also just came off a Harley XR1200 and I really enjoy my Versys. Just put new Michelins on it yesterday as I just went past 5k miles. Loving this bike.

Me too! So Nimble even in a cross wind. I was told by a few old bikers to ride a heavier bike through the wind as it will have more force. Either bike a heavier or lighter one will be blown off the road if the wind is strong enough.

Just have to keep fighting the bars to keep a line. Thanks for the welcome captpfd!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the bike purchase. This was my first new bike purchase in quite some time and love it. I enjoy the 650cc middle weight bike size and the light weight of the bike and the LT version with the bags. Enjoy!

BEST,
ANDY
