I recently picked up a 2007 Versys as a (big) upgrade from my Suzuki Across. What it lacks in on-bike storage it makes up for in power and off-road stability (the Across really didn't like 4wd trails very much).
It is my commuter, but also a key source of fun and adventure. I am pretty much set up to strap on a few bags and some kit and head off camping and/or rock climbing for a weekend with 20mins notice.
I signed up here to find out more about adventure and touring mods for the bike, plus learn a lot more about self-servicing, do's and don'ts and to share any experiences I have that might be interesting or helpful to others.
