Hi there,

My wife and I are based in New Zealand and are heading to Canada Alaska, US and Europe starting in June. We’ve just bought a 2012 Versys1000 in Kelowna BC, back home I ride a KLR650 and BMW 1150RT. Wile I’ve never owned a versys before I have always admired them , you don’t see many of them on the road here’s in NZ , the V-Strom are much more popular, it could be that the earl 650 are bloody ugly

aboard!

Did you buy the V1000 from "Honda Powerhouse" (https://www.kelownahonda.com/)?

Yes, I do. One of our "inmates" (Alaskajeff) was thinking of getting it, so asked me if I would do a test-ride on it, which I did - rode it for AROUND an hour to 1.5 hrs.

It's in VG condition, has that lovely "Tangerine metallic" paint (as long as it IS the one I tested).

NICE bike!

PM me before you come to get it, and I'll give you some contact (ME!) info, and I MIGHT be able to pick you up at the airport and drop you there.

I looked at the pics and it certainly looks like a different V1000, but my offer BELOW, still 'stands' IF I'm around.
