Joining the Versys Club

Hello Folks,

I type from Chicagoland where I live now. I'm originally from Brazil where I could ride 365 days/year. So, it's been a huge change for me waiting some less cold air to get out. These days, if it's over 35F I'll do it with the proper gear.

Anyway, after years riding Yamaha's (cruisers, sports, cross) I just decided to give Kawy a chance. I've tried a few from close friends and loved the ride and feeling. It's nimble, agile and get some good speed cruising on highways. It was hard to pass on a 2016 Versys 650 deal. Waiting anxiously for the bike delivery next Wednesday since it'll be coming from hundreds of miles away.

I have yet to come up with an excuse to miss work that day (and possibly the rest of the week).

There she is!! Rode 120 miles this afternoon from dealer. It was windy (15-20 mph gusts) but I manage to cut it like butter on highways at 80-90 mph. Sweet!!!
