Big change!

Rode home a new '18 650lt in white last night after trading in my Honda Fury! Definitely going to take some getting used to. Every takeoff I find myself reaching forward with my feet looking for the pegs, haha!

Slikspot...congratulations! I, too, just bought a new '18 on Tuesday.

You will get used to the difference really fast and, I think, you're going to enjoy the heck out of your Versys!

Welcome aboard. You'll get over the feet reaching forward thing pretty quickly I suspect. And, you'll have a lot more fun too. Great bike.

Welcome aboard and I bet it is a different feeling. I had the CTX700 before this and it is a cruiser type bike with the feet out front. The CTX is a great bike and very comfy but does sit totally different than a bike like the Versys. If I remember correctly the Fury is kind of like a 'chopper' , isn't it. Again Welcome. I just joined a few weeks ago and the people here have made me feel very welcome.
