Red face Versys Newbie

Glad I found this forum and hope to get valuable info to keep my Versys running strong and reliable. I bought my 2016 Versys 650 back in June 2018. Had only 450 miles on it. Came with GIVI cases, Sargent lower profile touring seat, gear indicator, and 12V power socket. I was almost to the point of buying a new one until I found this one sitting in the showroom of a suzuki dealer. Apparently the previous owner was used to a 1000 and couldn't get used to the 650. His loss, my gain. Best part.....bought it for $5500. I thought it was a very good deal. So I've put 3300 miles on it with no issues. Changed the oil at 600 miles and broke it in less than 5000 rpm until 1000 miles. I'm 67 yrs old and really enjoy this bike. Big enough to go where I want but can still get it in the back of a pickup for long haul travel to Arizona during the winter.

Welcome! Where do you stay in AZ for the winter?

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.
