From one member to another...

Hello! Looks like it's time to join a new forum! I just purchased an '08 Versys from Bash3r. I believe he had it for sale on here, sorry if you were wanting to buy it. I can say you definitely should have pulled the trigger if it crossed your mind. The bike is pretty much spotless, with all of the options you could possibly think of!

I have a TW200 that was my main commuting/fun bike. Now it'll spend most of it's days in the garage waiting for the weekends that it gets to go ride single-track and rough backroads.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully contributing as I start to figure the bike out a little more!

Nice looking bike. The red would be better is it were a lot more green in color.

I wanna see some pics of the TDub.
I love those, I regret selling mine.

I'm definitely a fan of red over green! I've been thinking about painting the fairings and front fender black and leaving the rest of the bike red. Maybe one day.

As for the TW, I put it up for sale shortly after I bought the Versys but told the first caller that it wasn't for sale anymore. I knew I would regret it so I kept it around!

Here it is in its current state...



And here's the newest addition to the Versys, TKC80 front tire with freshly rebuilt forks as of last Sunday. I've got a Shinko 705 on the rear that I've been very impressed with.
