I look forward to being an active member here. Most of my search inquiries led here anyways so I felt I should join and go direct!
I'm from just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I've ridden and raced Suzuki motorcycles since 1988 (yup, I'm up there in age). I had a brief ride with a 78 Z1R in 1987 before I blew it up and started on Suzuki.
I sold my 99 GSXR600 which I've had for the last 8 years and enjoyed riding and playing with to purchase this 2012 VERSYS 1000. OMG! What the heck have I been doing for the last 8 years?! I am so amazed at how comfortable and smooth this bike is. I know, racer to upright, what else did I expect. I just didn't expect to be so impressed.
Now I look forward to riding farther and for longer periods AND not having to think about physical impairment if I stay on the bike too long!
It came with a heated seat and grips from the previous owner. Ive added KAPPA crash guards, GIVI accessory mount on the triple clamp for my phone and GPS, and now I'm patiently waiting for Amazon to deliver my lights and switchgear to mount on the guard. I will also be spending time here reading what other things I can do to further enjoy the experience of a Versys rider!
