New Member / Versys ??

Impossible to stay below 4,000 rpm. To get home from my new purchase I had to travel on a highway with a speed limit of 110kph. 4,000rpm = 59 kph. I would have been run over by a semi trailer if I'd stayed below 4,000rpm.

Here's how I broke-in all THREE of my V650s, on the ride home from the dealer!
