Werner

It been 15 years since I sold my 1000 FZR Genesis. Ever since If been longing to get back on one but with 2 kids the budged just did not allow it. But the tides changed and I was able to pick up a brand new 2019 verys x 300 on Sunday. I had to ride from Santon to Rustenburg South Africa and I must admit I was nervous. 15 years is a long time not riding and all of a sudden I was on a new bike in a unfamiliar city. But this bike is so easy. The clutch is as light as a feather I did not even stalled it once, the breaks are more than adequate and the gears easy to find. Fear was quickly turned in to a smile. It does not have the power of the FZR but I did a comfortable 120 to 140 Km/h on the freeway and on the 170Km trip I got 27.5 Km/l.
