New guy in Ohio

Bought an '09 Versys in mean green back in April. It's a fantastic handling bike with great power!
I've been riding for about 8 years, and have switched bikes 5 times to find "my" bike. I'm very short, but I've learned to adapt and think ahead as my riding has improved. My dream bikes have always been the dual sport, adventure bikes, even before we had a name for them.
The V is comfortable, and definitely doable with the Speedy Gonzales lowering link. The dlr installed it for me, and I'm quite confident with the seat height.
And btw...I'm putting a few of my bikes up for sale. ; )
I found my ride

Hey another Ohio guy. You'll love you "V" more and more as time goes by.

I'm in Springfield maybe we'll meet up one day.

Or was that look THEN leap?

V.rider, I here at least a couple of fellow Ohioans per week talking about leaving Ohio for "paradise" in NC.

Gee...I wonder if it's our weather?
