Hello from Malaysia

Hi all, I am 60 from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have a Versys bought new in April this year. I only started riding 3 yrs ago after not having ridden a bike for more than 30 odd years.

Three years ago I started with a VN 900, had it for a year and moved to GTR 1400(Concours). Presently I have 3 bikes, Gtr, Versys and a Sym scooter. I am retired so riding is my main activity to pass time now.

I hope I can share my passion for bikes with you guys.



Cheers!!

Welcome from NZ, KL is a very busy place and was very suprised to see how many people can ride on one small scooter and cut in and out of traffic in front of large vehicles.

Hi Kiwi 41, thanks pal.

Roads here are short and narrow plus the weather is hot, the traffic is ever increasing so cutting in and out of traffic is unavoidable.

Hi Begbiie, thanks.

Versys day tripper?.....Not quite, I bought the Versys just for my trip to Laos and perhaps China in December. Gtr is not suitable for the rough terrain in those areas.

Unfortunately the Versys is giving me a headache, I'm having premature chain failure as posted by my buddy Rob7711 in this forum.
