I'm up in Denver and am seriously thinking of getting my arse on a Versys 650. Originally from England and have been riding motorcycles for near 25 years I feel the time to buy is around the corner.
Had all types of bikes over the years, usually keep them a couple of years before getting that bug for something else. Last ride was a 2011 Harley FXDC which although really nice just didnt give me that fun factor that I was seeking.
I ride all the time, only the snow and ice stops me and luckily Denver really isnt bad in that respect and I usually get to ride year round but a week or two for the ice when temps go lower.
Now I'm in the middle years of my life I am wanting that do it all bike so I can explore the fire trails, do some long distance and commute/errands which leads me to the Versys 650.
I see a few for sale locally and also the dealer is offering a good deal on a leftover 2017. I really like the looks of the newer gen but the second gen is also tickling my fancy. Havent rode one of these yet but hopefully plan to do so in the coming weeks unless I just go and buy one first
Did have an SV650 and really liked that engine plus the light weight feel of the bike. I am on the shorter side 5ft8 and did have a Triumph Scrambler which I believe sits higher 33" like the versys but I think the seat is thinner on the scrambler.
Anyways, just trying to decide which bike is next and wanted to say hello
