I struggled with many a sleepless nights, researching and deciding between the Versys 650 and the wee strom. I finally decided, and purchased the Versys. I am positive I made the right decision. I'm 66 and have owned a ton of bikes. From the Honda cub 50 up to the big harleys. I own 4 bikes at present time.(you can never own too many bikes). I have found the versys to be one of the funnest bikes I've ever owned. It's not a sport bike, but it will carve up a curve. It's not a dirt bike, but it does pretty good on gravel roads, pig trails, and fire lanes. It's not a fire breathing dragon, but it does have punch. I figure it's not the very best at anything, but it does every thing very well. Wait a minute. I was mistaken. It is the very best at putting a big ole smile on my face. Now if I could just get my hands on a versys X300. Not to worry, that will probably happen within the next few months.
I hope you decide on the bike you want, and that it gives you many years of pleasure. Always remember You aren't buying a bike to please others, You are buying a bike to make you the happiest person on earth. It's a choice only you can make.
