Second Attempt

Hey everyone, really hope my registration works out this time. I had fully registered and made a post before but then my account didn't exist anymore!

I have loads of questions and ideas for my 2013 Versys 650, any beginner tips if you're reading?

Quick Rebound - Canadians?

I know I just posted but I saw a few people asking about locations of members. I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada! Who is nearby?

Welcome aboard. Beginner's tips? Here are a few, in no particular order.

1.When you stop, remember to put at least one foot down.
2. Don't do anything abrupt in a corner such as snap the throttle closed or brake rapidly - it upsets balance and bad things can happen very quickly.
3.Despite what many riders say about having to "lay the bike down" don't do that if you can help it. Why give up even a semblance of control to become a helpless passenger?
4. Ride as if you're completely invisible and wear gear that will protect your fragile body in the event you do fall off or hit hard objects. Broken bones and road rash are VERY painful, and death is even worse (although I don't know about that last bit just yet).
5. Most importantly ride safely, enjoy the journey, and have a good time.

You can go back, then add your location to your SIGNATURE line as a lot of us have done.

What kind of questions do you have about the bike?

Here's to the first of the day...
