thinkin versy

Howdy, just totaled my beloved 02 connie. Lookin to get in to a versy cause the connie was just gettin to much to push around in the garage at my age. All the magazines like the versy and it looks like its a good tourer.

The Connie is a beast to push around the garage in comparison. You may miss the awesome power but may enjoy the light and nimble Versys in a differnt way.

Yeah thats kinda what I was thinkin. Rollin that Connie around in my younger day was ok but sometimes had to have the the ole lady help me put it on the centerstand. Frankly I really like the looks of a Versy. Probably have to figure out a way to lower it with the 33" seat height, we'll see.

Once a year for 17 years I took a bike trip to Austin to see a Uncle. On 1 trip my cousin and I went to see Billy Carter at the ole Antones that use to be a Shakeys pizza joint. Chris Layton was playing drums that nite and I got to shake his hand. Motorcycles, friends and memories....nothin better!
