Riding again after 30 years
I recently purchased a 2008 versys 650 10k miles on it. In very good shape with a just a couple additions like saddle bags, a helmet box, engine guard, different windshield, etc. I was looking at klr’s but when I saw a post that asked about taking the kle off-road and Alaska Jeff posted back that its meant for street only and to never do it all the while posting picks of hims la driving backwoods of Alaska, I was sold. I like this bike a lot and it’s astounding the technological upgrades over the bike I had 30 years ago. One thing I noticed right off the bat was how much better the tires are as an example.
My plan has been to have a dual sport/adventure bike setup so that I can ride down baja and back and then all over Mexico, and possibly other parts of North and South America. I figur d that this bike is big enough o get the job done, but also small enough to get back into “riding” shape. This forum and all the people here are the source I’ll need to achieve those dreams. Ride on!
