Pre-newb in So Cal
How can you be a pre-newb? I dont even have my M class license yet. That is this weekend, I take the class. Then I will be looking for an '08, I love the red.
At age 49 I have been mountain biking and riding and building electric bikes and mopeds capable of 40+ mph for years, and I have had a manual tranny in may 90% of my cars, including pricey BMWs, so I am thinking the motorcycle curve will not be steep. Where I work we have a parking structure where a big section of the first floor is set aside for motorcycles, and wow, what a great collection of bikes. After walking by them for months and thinking about it I finally got bit. I have a family full of Harley riders, they are all clueless about bikes like the Versys, but that is OK, we have lots to talk about.
I am contemplating a Versys if I can be convinced it can do easy fire road riding with some light knobs like the Corsa MT 60s. This forum looks like a great resource!
