Cool Noob to almost all of this

Howdy, and thanks for letting me in!

New rider, well, might as well be new since I haven't been on a bike in over 25 years. Almost bought a Versys 10-ish years ago, but for some reason didn't. Probably offspring related. Anyway, now at 50..... found a 2008 with 12k on it. Haggled the dude down a bit to $2200 with a brand spankin' new Raiden jacket included. I was happy with that.

Many questions, but all in good time, first I need to read up on what you seasoned folks have already talked about.

Best
Beamer

Thanks!!!

So far so good, first week and stayed vertical! Amazing how much focus this all takes, so much more than when I was 17 on a TS-50 ER..... Oh, and 6th gear? Surprises me every time when I wonder if I'm in top and suddenly find yet another gear. Must get one of those gear # indicator thingies, among other thingies.
