Hello! New member here!

Hello,

I'm new to the forum and am maining looking for advice and information surrounding the Kawasaki Versys 650 Grand Tourer. I believe this may be my next bike if my legs allow it to happen however, I am being disheartened since sitting on one recently.

I passed my A2 in 2018 and have had a Honda Deauville which didn't go well and moved onto a Kawasaki ZR-7S which I am enjoying quite a bit beside the fact that it's an 18-year-old bike.

Hopefully, I'll be able to get some information and be on the path to the dream bike.

Thank you all!

I see the LINK REDACTED DUE TO POST LIMIT
The original link worked or was this because you copied and pasted?

aboad and for your information the bike can be lowered, if that,s your setback.

Drop us a line or two on what your set backs are and members here will share their thoughts.

Hiya mate, it is one of my issues and with my ZR7S it brought on a lot of issues lowering the bike. Such as peg scraping, bumping the exhaust on speed bumps, etc.

I've been reading a lot that's already on the forum and it's been really informative but if it's okay I'll make a new up to date post.

Hello,

I was just wondering if my account is now activated or if I need to wait until Monday for it to be manually activated by a moderator.

If I have missed something I need to complete please let me know so I can amend it.

Thank you.

It should be full now or at the latest 6 PM today, you need to allow 2 hours for scan time and updating. Try logging out then back in again. @BrewMyTeabag

Ah that maybe the reason I'm living in the UK so I've taken the time as if it's British.

The 50 hour period probably isn't finished.

I'll wait until tomorrow and check. Thank you.

Did you use your area for setting your clock, because the total time is correct, I just look at your second post time, add 50 hours from that post and then within 30 minutes you should be a full member, just realize when you log out then log in again, your info gets scanned to the computer, being you are logged in it doesn't do that/ or may take longer.

Okay mate! I'll log out and double check if it's all sorted. I'm on my mobile so I may still have issues until I get on the PC tomorrow.

Thanks for all your help.
