New Versys 1000 owner

Hi ladies and gents, I am brand new to the forum and just bought my 2016 Versys 1000 LT today. It was lightly used, with just under 2300 miles on it. Itís still at the dealership as I ordered the Kawi fog light bar and electrical outlet and theyíre going to install them. Theyíre also storing it for me through the winter since I live in Maine and donít have a garage. Iíll be picking it up in March most likely, so now I have a long winter waiting and hoping for an early thaw. In the meantime, Iím watching a lot of videos on YouTube and reading up in the forums here.

This is my third bike, and my second Kawi. My first was a Kawi KZ750. I believe it was an 83 or 84. Next I had a Ducati Monster 620, but Iíve been without a bike for about 5 years now. This is my first sport-tourer and I canít wait to put some serious miles on my Versys.

Glad to hear yet another "hear the calling" after a few years away from riding!

Thanks. Yeah, I sold my last bike because my kids were young and I felt like I never had time to ride. It was depressing to just see it sit there in my garage. The kids are older now and Iíve got plenty of free time. I look forward to filling it with miles.
