New member....first post

I just bought a Versys 650.

I only got my license last fall, and purchased a Rebel 300. The Rebel vibrates SO BAD (single cylinder) and the seat is so uncomfortable, that it hurts to ride even 1 hour. So now I have a Versys. I'm in my mid 50's, living in the midwest.

But one question I have, why can't I post in the 650 section?

Welcome to the group from another midwesterner. I think you need to have two posts to be able to post anywhere. I'm sure one of the mods will chime in to give you the correct answer.

Edit: This will answer your question: https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...%2A%2A1st.html

I don't care what you ride, just ride.

Thanks to all. And I DO like the new bike. It is SO SMOOTH compared to the rebel 300. It was like sitting on a power sander.
A guy shouldn't hurt for days 'down there' after a 2 hour ride.

The seat is 5 inches higher...that's going to take some time to get used too.

Expained in the welcome from me, not sure why but 90% of new members make 1 post only.The reality is 1 post and 1year = not a full member. 1year and today= full member in roughly 50 hours from the time of today's 2nd post.
Nothing I can or want to do about it.
