I bought a used 2008 Versys in October based on Motorcyclist's recent MOTY award. Since I also have an '05 Goldwing and couldn't get out of the house without the Mrs. as a co-rider I needed a way to ride alone on occasion. It is obviously a totally different ride than the Wing and I have had a ball riding the Versys. It is everything I expected and more.
There are a couple of things that I have noticed with the V that may or may not be typical. Maybe someone can shed some light. First is that there is a lot of vibration at all rpms. I suspect that this is due to the parallel twin configuration, but seems busier than I expected. The second is that the speedometer seems very inaccurate. I've owned a '00 Suzuki Maurader and a '00 CBR F4i which both had speedo error but not nearly as much as the V.
I am not very familiar with forums but this one seems informative and user friendly. Looking forward to keeping up with the V info.
