Hello there...

Hello, I appreciate that there is a site dedicated to the Kawasaki Versys.

I am here because, while I already own one bike, I am looking to eventually add a second, different style of bike to my garage.

I currently have a Honda GoldWing F6B with 16,000 miles on it that I bought as a new leftover about 2.5 years ago.

The Versys first caught my attention a year or so ago as a solid, dependable, efficient and well-reviewed bike...with ABS (Awhile ago made a decision that I will not buy another bike without it).

Also, as mentioned, I am looking for something different as a second bike rather than upgrading to the new Wing.

I would like a different style of riding and be able to do some light off-roading on some rare occasions.

Anyway, I am here to learn more about the Versys that I cannot learn from mag and video reviews, such as how easy they are to maintain, trouble spots, etc.

I look forward to being a member of the forum!

-Chris

Current ride:
2013 Honda F6B

Welcome.............lots of good reading here. I switched to the Versys about 1 1/2 years ago from a 1500 Vulcan. It just got too heavy for my advancing age.
