Greetings

Greetings from Waco! Just purchased a 2008 V650 yesterday, but have to get it inspected etc before I can ride. I started riding about a year ago on a Sportster 883, but had a wipeout last week that totaled it. I'm obviously new to this style bike, so any tips/tricks/recommendations are always appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome from San Antonio. You didn't say you were injured in the wipeout and that's a very good thing. I believe you'll find the Versys a much more enjoyable machine. It has, in my opinion, better suspension, better ergonomics, and a strong, modern parallel twin engine and gearbox.

And you can find answers to almost any Versys-related question you can think of right here. This group has massive knowledge and experience.

aboard!

I'm still riding MY '08 at 76,910 miles (and there's a LOT more in there!).
