Howdy from Texas!

First time here and actually first time motorcycle rider. A friend of ours is selling his 2008 Versys 650 and I thought to finally act on my desire to get into motorcycle riding. Still have to do the mandatory BRC to get the motorcycle add-on to my drivers license, but that will be done shortly. I am actually doing it together with my wife. She's getting a brand new Honda CB300F and I get the Versys. Hope that's OK to mention on a Kawasaki forum.

Anyways, our friend is bringing the bike over tomorrow and I thought I better get up to speed on all things Versys and join the forum. Great to be here and learn a lot!

Awesome! My big first adventure after taking the BRC is to go pick up my wife's bike in Tyler, about 1 1/2 hour away. She doesn't have her's done yet, so don't want to get her into trouble bringing it back. But from there on, it's going to be the Versys for me!

Been awhile since I've been home. Could really go for some good BBQ, Tex-Mex or a Chicken Fried Steak...But for now I'll just rough it out here in SoCal...

Welcome from Friendswood TX. I purchased a 2008 a couple of months ago and I love it. It's a lot of bike for a noob, so BE CAREFUL, but enjoy
