Talking Got my dream bike

Well finally got my dream bike. Ha! I know my standards should probably be higher for a dream bike. All I'm saying for as little road experience as I have. Even if my motorcycle standards get more demanding and pricey. It'll still be hard to get rid of her in some great distant future. Last year scored my first street bike on Craig's. 08 ninja 250 for 2100. Had low miles, ran great. Rode it for about 10 months then sold it. Was cool bike made me realize what all the hype about motorcycle riding was all about. After loads of research and realizing the kinda rider I think I wanna be the versys just made top of my list. Compared to other simalar makes I just like the looks on the versys the best. So about 2 and half months ago scored my 2010 versys on Craig's for 5500 with tank bag and two barley used icon helmets. Barley had little under 4000 miles on it. Did a oil change on it to get to know the bike a little more and to be on the safe side. The bike has been feeling just perfect. And with the accessories I added, I just think for me, the bike is my dream bike. Hope to learn to speak versys better soon so I can communicate with all of u better. Ha! Good times!

Thanx a bunch. Skid plate, crash bars, hand guards, and windshield were my personal upgrades.
