Cool New Versys Owner

Howdy!

I'm very excited to be joining your ranks when I pick up my new (to me) 2016 Versys 650 tomorrow morning! I test rode it today and loved it pretty much as soon as I sat on it. I'm upgrading from the CB500F and the Versys seems much more fun and more comfortable.

See you on the road!

Welcome aboard from a one-time Oregonian. Attended undergrad school at Pacific University, Forest Grove, many, many years ago. My ride at the time was a '57 Harley 750 flathead Sportster. How times have changed!

Welcome and hope you like your new bike. I know the 650 has more power but the Versys 300 is very smooth and I'm sure yours will be even smoother.

I'm stoked to be here. Any idea how long it might take to get my account approved? I still can't post anywhere else in the forum. Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks!

Hiya DitR! I was the guy wjo wrote the long comment on your YouTube video when you tested the Versys. Congratulations! You'll be sure to have a lot of fun on the bike. Be able to do some proper touring on those loooong roads of yours as well.

I agree the ride is kind of smooth. I wasn`t able to do a test ride on a Versys 650 . I`m liking my new 17 so far but only have 100 miles on it.
