PNWet New comer
Hello All! As you can tell I live in the PNWet and drive the Columbia Gorge every day I work (and even days I don't.).
I have been looking at getting a bike for a year and a half or so, but things kept coming up. Now that its a new year I am setting my goal to get a Versys by end of March, coincidently right around my girlfriends birthday. I plan to get the Candy Green color.
Last year I took the safety MSF class and passed the class with flying colors. Then once I got my endorsement my neighbor let me ride his 1000 Wee Strom, and then he bought a tiger triumph (after a divorce go figure) and let me ride that on a short 50 mile ride. Both were fun but the Wee Strom was just too much of a bike for me to see driving every day, and the tiger... that is spendy.
However the Versys just seemed to fit me well. It can be a little snug of a fit as I am 6'5" 155-160 lbs with a 37 1/2" inseam. But I still enjoyed it immensely on my test ride.
Anyways, I have been registered on the forum for a few days but I did lurk for a bit just reading different things about it and I am glad to know there is a good group of people willing to help if there are questions.
Looking forward to meeting up with some of you, and in the mean time ATGATT.
