Versys in Houston

Just an intro post. I recently acquired a salvage title 2009 Versys. Seems like a great bike- cleaning up some surface rust and fiddling with the windshield till it warms up. I'll ride to work and such in whatever weather, but rides for fun are reserved for nicer days.

The first 5 were family bikes, I just outgrew one and went to the next one. Some of the others only lasted 6 months befor I sold them, but that's why I don't buy new bikes. Every bike on that list had something I liked about it, and I have wished I still had each one at one time or another.

I guess that means I need a big garage, yes?

from just down the road in San Antonio, home of the Alamo, the River Walk and over a million insane drivers. Makes riding rather exciting.
