Greetings from Colorado!
Hello, everybody. I am a longtime bicyclist but a new motorcyclist residing in beautiful Colorado (between my Denver and Boulder offices). Saw all the bikers looking like they were having fun and wanted to give it a try, so I took a MSF course and caught the bug. Got a killer deal on a brand new 2011 Versys about a month ago and I'm having big fun. The Versys is perfect for my needs-- weekend canyon climbing up the twisties, commuting, and occasional backroads adventure. Farkle/mods so far include a Givi topbox that works great for commuting and securing a helmet when I arrive, mirror extenders, a peg lowering kit I need to install, a givi engine guard I will install before hitting any gravel/dirt roads, and a larger Givi windscreen that is on its way. Just cleared the 500 mile break-in period. So far so good!
