Another noob! Getting my 2016 Versys 1000 LT tomorrow...
Yep, another noob going to be lurking and at times showing my Versys ignorance...
Live in Charlottesville, VA and will be picking up a new 2016 Versys 1000 LT in Goblin Green (OK, Candy Lime Green) tomorrow from Village Motorsports in Unionsville, VA... Really looking forward to that becoming my main, do anything, take me anywhere steed. I presently have a 2011 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS that I am realizing is not exactly the bike my size and occasional 2UP riding needs.
Why the Versys 1000 LT? It was actually my second choice. My first was a Yamaha Super Tenere ES, but that bike was just too darn TALL for me. But the Versys 1000 fit me just right! What sold me over the 650 Versys was the seat! Mucho better seat, especially for passenger. Also the POWER! Would have loved to have the electronic suspension control of the Tenere, but alas, can't have everything (without buckets of $$$ for a BMW).
Speaking of BMW, I almost bought an 2009 RT1200 tour bike. It was used and totally accessoried out. But I am glad I didn't, it is just too big for what I need and want. The Versys is the sport bike for adults... LOL!
Anyways, there is my intro. See you in the forums.
