Versys Eventually...

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and I'm looking to learn more about the kinds of riding people do on bikes like the Versys. I really love the practicality of the it as an everyday bike. I'd love to own one to commute with in the future. I hope to meet some great people and get some help in becoming knowledgeable about the Versys!

I use mine to commute on. Hit the twisties and long distance rides. Whatever kind of riding i've thrown at the Versys it has handled it well.

Weekdays: urban commuting (i.e. potholes) . Weekends: country roads & highway (a little bit of gravel/trails). Same ease and great handling.

Welcome! My riding is the same as CaptainShaq's...it's an urban assault vehicle. And it works well in that role.

aboard!

I'm a daily Manhattan commuter, and the Versys is the only bike I've found that has suited me as daily commuter in rough conditions, year round; and for weekends away in the country. Brilliant bike for a commuter.

Welcome, use mine to go to work at times, group rides, solo rides, short rides to town since I live in the country, 9 day ride doing just over 4000km, a few track days, it does it all.
