Hello from Sweden

Hi all of you

After 30years on four wheels only, Im now riding a Versys.

Its a 2009 Metallic-gray ABS with 1000km on the "clock"

It feels fantastic to back in the saddle again

Best regards

Hello CPHB,

I just got one of those myself, and boy would I love to ride through Sweden and through the rest of Northern and actually all of Europe, maybe someday.

have fun riding, I'm still working on breaking mine in.

Moon Dust Gray Versys, with lots of farkles.

Vlast

P.S. I bought my Versys to support my photography hobby.

Welcome to the board CPHB. Where are you in Sweden? I have been to Karlstad (with a side trip to Oslo) and Stockholm. It's a lovely country with friendly people, very much like Canada, I found. Can I also say drivers there seem VERY law-abiding? In a posted 100 zone people were driving 100. NOT like here where everyone regularly exceeds the posted speeds. Have you also visited the UK forum? It is a bit more Euro oriented. Safe riding.

Wellcome, nice to see some scandinavian people here. Norvegian fjord-roads will be great with Versys. I'm dreaming to go there also one day. For me there is only 1200km of boring transition ride and a half day boat trip before I' would be on the coast.

Maybe you should get rid of the original Dunflops before you go there. I got Michelin RP2s monday and it is a totally different bike now.

But, keep the rubber side down, enjoy your ride. And be careful with the norvegians, they are unpredictable on the road...and in hotel's breakfast room.

Jabbadabbaduu...

Looks nice! I like the black and silver color scheme.

I wish we had the silver color in the US.

Maybe for 2010....
