Ahoy from Western Canada

Hey there all!

I picked up a new-from-dealer 2017 Versys 650 SE LT a week ago at a steep discount in small-town Alberta, Canada and immediately rode it 3 hours home to Calgary. All in all I'm super impressed with the bike. The power and ergonomics are my favorite part so far - probably doesn't hurt that this is my first "big" bike after my Ninja 300

I'm looking forward to getting to know the bike, and to doing some touring with the wife on her Ninja.

Also worth mentioning that I've already ordered some minimal crash protection, a set of spools so I can put it up on my rear stand, and a u-bolt handle bar ball for my old Ninja's RAM mount.

Next up is a new windshield to hopefully cure the helmet buffeting at highway speed, and some way to charge my phone for the longer trips.
