New member and owner of a 2011 Versys 650

Hello everyone,

I just bought my very first bike this weekend and I'm more than happy with my choice!

Living in an area surrounded by mountains (Grenoble, France), I was looking for a bike that is easy to ride (I'm a beginner after all) but with enough torque to be fun on these mountains roads. I also wanted it to be confortable enough to be duo riding on middle / long distances as it is the idea to be able to go on weekends with my girlfriend.

So I went on and bought a pre-owned 2011 Versys 650 and I think I made the right choice! My first ride in the mountains on Sunday was a blast, and I love the seat the previous owner put on it

I did notice the buzzing coming from the plastic but I saw that someone made a really good post on how to fix it with adhesive foam on this forum, so I'll try to fix it that way!

Anyway, loving my Versys!

Thank you everyone!

It's just so nice to be able to go on a 1-2 hours ride after a long work day!

I also noticed that I really don't know my city beside the few roads I was taking regularly, it took half an hour for me to find my way home yesterday, just because I entered Grenoble from a road I wasn't familiar with...

Great motorcycle and spectacular photo of your local mountains. I believe my Envy Meter just pegged itself.
