Greetings from San Francisco!
I'm happy to report that I recently snatched up a new to me 2009 Versys with just a hair over 7200 miles. After replacing what looked to be the original rear tire it's been an absolute dream to ride.
I commute across the Bay Bridge five days a week for my primary job and do food deliveries in the evening as a side gig. I've only had it for two days now but we've been getting nicely acquainted over the course of 160ish miles. My first bike was a 1981 Suzuki GS550 that I revived from the dead after finding on craigslist for a few hundred. That one took a lot of work to call reliable but taught me a lot over the process of a few months. Even though the Versys is my first modern bike I'm still looking forward to doing my own maintenance and repairs and can't wait to dive in to the knowledge base formed by this community.
Catch you in the forums and on the road,
