Cool New to Versys/New to Forum

Greetings all,
I'm getting old an have been riding Harleys for years. Love the ergonomics, sound & torque. Thing is such a heavy bike is very difficult to maneuver out of a hazard & where I live (Thailand) there's multiple hazards on any givin ride. It's literally the most dangerous country in the world to operate a motor vehicle. Also, a big air cooled machine getting jammed up in traffic here (HOT) is just plain miserable.
After some research I recently bought a 2012 KLE650 & like it. I'm a diy'er and have started a few tweaks to improve the ride. I look forward to reading more of the great posts here & will eventually drop some of my own.
Thank you!

Still have the Harley & love it. I don't want to make my wife a widow so very likely will sell down the road
