New Member Loving my Versys after only a few days

So I just bought a 2009 Versys 650, already have started to add the accessories, and of course found this awesome forum! Looking forward to learning alot about these bikes, and hoping to make some new friends too!

Welcome. Wait till a few more days have passed - you'll love it even more than you do now.

Thanks! I took it out last evening on some twisty roads, so I can learn how it behaves in corners. I was enjoying it so much, I guess I didn't realize how slow I was going and had a line of cars behind me! I'm not in a hurry to push the limits anyway. Just enjoying riding for now.

congrats. it's a fun bike, irregardless of skill level. I tend to lug my bike more these days. you don't have to rev it too much to get deliverable power. but it likes reving all the same!
