Hi all, I've joined this forum after buying a '08 Versys. Is it true Red is the fastest color? LOL
I'm a senior rider, been on beemers and Guzzis for the last 15 years and found the V while looking for a light weight street machine. Other bikes considered were the WeeStrom, and the Yamaha FZ6 .
I found my V on craigslist and the PO had installed about everything I could ask for on the bike. Factory luggage, JCW topbox, lowered rear shock, lowered footpegs, heated grips, highway running lights, and a Corbin seat.
The Corbin looks better than what they made a few years ago, but still stiff as a board. It's o.k. though as I have beads or sheepskin cover if needed.
I took the bike on a camping trip two weeks ago to the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground and really enjoyed the bike.
I plan to ride the bike on a 1350 miles round trip in mid November to a beemer rally in Venice Florida. I usually get to 7-10 camping rallies a year.
Look forward to putting more miles on the V.
