Been planning on picking up a Gen 2 Versys for quite some time now. This one happened to follow me home last month (see attached since I cannot embed yet).
I've been riding for 8 years or so, close to 15k miles under my belt so far. A few of those years saw very little riding but a group of friends and I do 2-3 1k+ mile rides each year so they've been going up quickly!
I learned to ride on a Sachs MadAss 125, did my safety course, and graduated to a '06 Yamaha FZ6. The Fazer was sold a few years ago and I have spent the time since then riding a friend's '09 KLR650 in the meantime. Looking forward to many more in the saddle of this '13 Versys 650.
