Back in the saddle

Hi! I’m getting a 2017 Versys 650 LT on Thursday. It will be the 4th bike I’ve owned. Sold my BMW last year and missed riding with my husband so after much searching I think I found my dream bike!

She’s all mine!

Brought home the Versys today!! Lowering kit is on its way. I’m tip toed now so the lowering kit will drop it 2” which should be perfect. Otherwise it’s off to the taffy puller with me!!! Super stoked to get back on 2 wheels!!

Once you 'set' your sag, you MIGHT be able to flat-foot once you settle your butt onto the seat. I'm about 5'9", 31" inseam, and I CAN flat-foot once my weight settles the suspension (around 47mm of sag for me - JUST under 2"!).

Nice to see lady riders on the forum. We need more!Im 5 foot 8 so lowering kit,bar risers and I ended up getting lowered Sergeant seat.See some folks have done their mods on their stock seats with great results.The capper for me was modifying my riding boots at a cobbler,more heel depth for a solid foot plant.
