2nd Versys purchase 2017 650 LT titanium.

My first bike was a 2012 Versys. I am really enjoying the new one. I've ridden klr 650 BMW r1200rt super tenere victory cruiser and I think I got it right the first time. For me

Hope to see some action shots of that 2017 soon.

In the meantime....

I have ridden over 500 miles on the 2017. The new versys seems to fuel more evenly and the vibrations are almost non-existent.

I put an MRA X-Screen on the windscreen which is at the lowest position. There is virtually no helmet buffeting even when I have my 3/4 helmet full face shield open. I didn't do any readjustments-- perfect first try.

I was never able to get rid of the buffeting with 2012. The x-screen didn't help on stock or Givi aftermarket screen. The best I could do was with just the Givi screen by itself which wasn't great.
I am putting images of 2017 and 2012 Versys which I sold after putting 13000 miles on.
