I'm 6-4 and I feel the Versys fits me pretty well.
I got mine last August and it is my first bike so I don't have a lot of other experience to go on but:
-I did a lot of dry trips and one 2 day 825 mile weekend trip. This June I'm planning a 4 day, 1300 mile trip around Lake Superior.
-It is a personal preference, but most people do at least some modification to the seat, if not a replacement. I'm going to add an air hawk and maybe a little foam to level it out and then I think I will be good.
-Knee angle for longer rides seems to be good for me, but there is a way to add highway pegs if you like. As long as I can stretch my legs at stop light every now and then I'm good.
-When it is warm out I like the shorter windscreen. If it is raining or cold you will have to some figuring on what screen it will take to throw the wind up over you. I'm playing with that too, but not sure how much I want to spend due to the limited amount of use it will get.
-The biggest thing with touring on the Versys is going to be storage. I just picked up a waterproof duffle and saddle bags. As soon as the snow is gone I'm going to make a set of stand-offs to keep the saddle bags from sagging in when I tighten them down. I'll also be adding a rear rack.
Overall I think it works just fine, especially with no passenger. Long distance two up it might struggle a little depending on your riding style and expectations. Probably not as comfortable as say a Concourse or FJR, but it is a lot more nimble and fun in other scenarios and it still gets the touring job done well enough.
Hope that helps,
