new 650 lt owner

Hi all, just bought a '17 versys 650 LT today. Traded an '09 BMW K1200LT in on it. Lost about half the weight, but doubled the fun (at least so far).

And the fun factor gets better and better. The more you ride the versys the funner it gets.

Welcome aboard. Funny how that happens, isn't it? With less weight to wrestle the fun factor seems to grow and grow as the miles accumulate.
