I last rode in college and that was a long time ago...
Convinced myself I needed to retry; so, took MSF safety course and got my motorcycle endorsement this summer.
Been looking at the ads and trying to figure out what my first bike back... The bike I rode in the safety course was a cruiser and didn't feel right. So, I've been looking for a more upright positioned bike with a reasonable price ( that I wouldn't feel so bad if I scratched it while relearning ).
Finally, got a hit with a 2009 Versys and picked it up today. Feels good but scary for me with limited experience; rain and wind bringing it home really drove that point for me
It only has 4k miles on it; and spent the last 2 years in storage. It came with heated grips and hard shell side bags.
The tires appear to be original (e.g. about 8 years old ); so, I'm planning on replacing them proactively.
I'm going to guess the coolant is original as well, probably should replace that.
Previous owner said the oil was changed yearly, I'll probably change it to figure it out
Need to adjust the windscreen for my height
Some plastic is vibrating near the gauge cluster; probably try to find where to stuff some foam to quiet that down.
Going to invest in a battery tender.
Any suggestions or other things to replace, get or add?
Back in the saddle again...
