New V owner in CA

Hello everyone, greetings from the Central Valley of CA! I picked up an 09 green Versys in August and love it so far. Has the Kawi/Givi matching hard bags and the prev owner bought a ext warranty with it until 3/17. It had 5100 miles on it when i picked it up. Took it home and changed the oil (easy to do). I ride mostly for recreation, no commuting. Been riding an old 85 Interceptor 700 the past few years after a long absence. Wanted a newer bike to do some longer rides with. Want to do a trip down the CA coast next year and Kings Canyon/Sequoia NP. I read a lot of info on the forum here before I purchased so you guys really helped in the decision to buy a Versys.

Went to high school in Vacaville, California - north of you between Sacramento and San Francisco. Nice little town way back in the '60s.
