Two-time Versys owner in Portland, OR

Hey gang,

I'm a current owner of a Candy Lime 2015 Versys 650 LT based in Portland, OR.

I previously owned a 2011 Versys that I foolishly traded in for a Triumph Bonneville.

I now also have a new Yamaha FZ-09 and have put my Versys up for sale.

Cheers, and keep the rubber side down

why not FJ09 (MT 09 tracer) instead of FZ 09? That's closer riding position than FZ09

Quite honestly I just found the FZ most comfortable for my height, inseam, and riding position. I think I also wanted something a bit less tall. I also test rode the FJ (Tracer) and the XSR, but just didn't enjoy the feeling as much.
