New to Versys

Going to the Yukon and I needed a bike to do it on. I'm thinking this bike is the ticket

Nice! I don't intentionally ride off road, but if I did I believe I would replace the tires with something more suited to off road riding. I imagine you will receive many suggestions if you ask what those who intentionally ride off road have mounted.

Thanks Arion, but I did actually already buy a set of Shinko 705's. The pic is from March when I bought it and I've put about 1,300 km on so far since then.

Welcome to the club! I am one year in on my Versys and love it. However, I have yet to do any heavy touring yet.

aboard!

The Yukon? Going to D2d in Dawson...? Here're pics of my two V650s up there awhile back. The '09 on the Dempster Hwy.



Oiling the chain on my '15 - a few miles S of Dawson.

I originally planned to go to D2d (found out about it by fluke) but I work in oil and gas and have a turnaround I have to work through June/July.

I'm heading up at the end of Aug.

Nice pics by the way, I can't wait to go, it'll be my first trip there, couldn't think of a better way to do it.

I've ridden to the Yukon and/or Alaska SIX times: ONCE on an '03 Suzuki Bandit 1200S, TWICE on an '04 KLR650, THREE times on a V650.

TWICE on this one (in '13 and '15 for D2D)





and ONCE on this one (in '16 for D2D)!

Ok? I don’t get it? I have been replying to this thread. What am I doing wrong?

Never had a problem on other forums posting, or not posting.
