Just bought today!

Hey guys and girls.

My name is Joe, I just signed for my loan and 2009 Versys this afternoon! I'm waiting for some new tires to arrive and be installed, and she should be ready to take home by Tuesday. Super excited!

This is my third bike since I started riding in the Spring of 2011. I started on a 1984 Kawasaki LTD440, last year upgraded to a 1999 Suzuki Bandit 600s, and now on to my Versys! The Bandit was just giving me so many problems that I finally threw my hands up after a year of spending more time working on it than riding it. Once it's put back together, it's off to Craigslist with it!

Anyway, really excited to move on to a great bike, and to this great community! I will have plenty of questions for you all right off the back, like some of the better (but less expensive) exhaust upgrades (she's too damn quiet!), and some affordable yet good looking pannier/frame options.

Welcome and with the stock exhaust she is quiet, my wife tease's me about the turbo charged sewing machine sound.
