Post Hi from Italy

Hi, I'm Piero.
I'm italian and I bought my orange Versys in October 2007.
Now I ride over 19.000 km (12.000 mls) and I think it is a great bike .

In May 2007, my wife and me did our honeymoon in USA. In Los Angeles we rented a BMW 1200 GS and travel across California, Arizona, Utah ad Nevada (Route 66, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas, Yosemite Park, San Francisco, and US1 to return in LA): wonderful tour, I lost my heart in USA.

If you want, you may visit my website http://landrider.altervista.org , in "Home -> Viaggi" You will find some ours tours with photos


Bye!!

When you want, I'm happy to have you here.

I see, that in USA The Versys colours are different than Europe
Here there are these colours:
2007: Orange, Silver, Black
2008: Green, Blue, Black
2009: Light orange, dark silver, black

In 2007 orange Versys, 2008 green Versys and all 2009 colours, the front suspensions and plastics under the tank are black, in the other colours are silver.

In USA the plastics under the tank are always silver, not exixt the black Versys and exist a Red vesrys

I hope my english is understandable...

Bye
