For my second post, a bit on my background.
I don't have extensive riding experience, rode a rebel 250 for 2-3 years, then a super sherpa for a while. The last bike I had was an 85ish (iirc) GPZ750. That was almost 12 years ago, when my wife got pregnant with our son, I sold the bike.
He's older now (almost 11) and We have both finished college (finally) and have comfortable stable careers in our chosen professions. With me commuting 50 miles one way to the office I figured a comfortable commuter bike was in order. Mostly an excuse to ride again, but a good excuse!
Everything I researched pointed to either a CN750X or Versys. I kept seeing everyone like the versys and everyone said the CN was lackluster. So here I am now, with a Versys, that from the ride home I can already tell is the perfect bike for me.
