New Rider New Bike (to me atleast)

Hey all, I am rss2018 I recently got my motorcycle endorsement after taking the MSF Course. I purchased an '08 Versys 650 in July. I have to say that for a first bike, it is very controllable, but still has potential to blow my socks off. I was originally going to get a 250 cruiser, but the sales person did his job and convinced me that for a guy my size, (6'2" 240 lbs.) a 250 would grow dull. i don't know how true that is, but i am glad that they had the V onsite. I like the riding position of the V, as i didn't want to be hunched over looking down. So far i am excited and still ready and willing to learn more about the bike and improve my riding technique.

Welcome and you definitely did the right thing. You would grow out of the 250 real fast. The Versys is a great bike for beginners and experienced riders. Very easy to handle at slower speeds and in the corners.
