new member from Missouri

Hey everyone, joined couple weeks ago...just read new member rules LOL so here's my intro post I guess...
So I've been riding for 18 yrs now, only on crotch rockets...all I know. Sold my GSXR1000 about a month ago and decided after lots of researching (and scrolling through this forum) that I wanted a Versys 650.
Came home with a Hell of a steal on a '16 model this last weekend! Only 2000 miles on her and I plan on putting many many more miles...love the comfort, wind protection, saddlebags, etc.
My name is Bryan, I live in the Ozarks, Branson, MO area
Glad to meet ya!

Step 2. Hit some trails with it!

The problem with owning a Versys is if you want to replace it with noticeable improvement, you either need a Ninja 1000 or a Husqvarna 501.

Nice! I'm also from the KC area; Lees Summit, actually. I rarely see Vs riding around the city, which is probably why mine gets so many looks.

Welcome from New Mexico. I have had the pleasure (except for certain parts of the year) to spend quite a bit of time in Missouri, but always in the Kansas City area.
