Well Hello!

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.

Cheers,

Tobin

Strange!! I had a white 13 Versys 650 follow me home a while back. These aren't the only cases I've heard of. Seems it happens quite often.

Congrats on the new addition. as others stated. The blue looks good.

Welcome aboard. Isn't it great how frequently really nice things follow a person home?

I was really hunting for a white Gen 2! One slipped through my fingers due wacko DMV rules. BEST color combo in IMO.

Thanks all for the warm welcome. I am no stranger to forums but I am admittedly more of a lurker than an active member sometimes
