For the longest time I thought that the Vulcan 900 is the one, but after today's trip to the dealer and being able to sit down on it, it just felt great. On the Vulcan I feel like I'm stretched out too much.. I know that the Versys is 650cc and not the 900cc Vulcan, but I think that for someone just getting into this, 650cc should be more than enough. Question - Is it a matter of getting used to the location of the gear lever?? It felt to me like it should be just a little more forward. What say you?
