New!

A little about me: I am 16, junior in HS, have been dirt biking since age 8 with my dad. Dad rides a BMW R1100RT, so I got my Motorcycle permit....and with some strings being pulled, got a 2009 Kawasaki Versys. I am 3rd owner. The 1st, a mechanic at a shop far away did all the modifications, the 2nd owner literally put 719 miles on it in 2 years.

Specs: $4500 (Craigslist)
2009 Kawasaki Versys
4350 Miles
Mods: Acerbis, FMF pipe, engine guards, custom paint (tri-racing stripe), top case, and heated grips.

I want to: LED turn signals (maybe), aluminum skid plate, and add a few accent pieces.

Love'n it!

Welcome. I think a lot of Versys riders come from a dirt bike background, I know I did.
Enjoy the new ride!

Went on my first "real" ride with my Dad today! 25 miles around town. Hit 8,000 RPM on the highway, the FMF make a mighty nice tune.
