Deventer, Nederland, introduce myself

I am a rider, not a houseman. I am a reader, not a talker. So, I ride on and read on. Sometimes I can help someone with my experience and knowledge, for what it is worth.
Oh, and I am Dutch, 63 allmost 64, riding now 45 years still as crazy, only Valentiny Rossi is faster, and one million others, still have not managed to get my steps to the ground of my favourite Versys while cornering on high speed.
My Versys is 6 years my companion and one of the most reliable and for sure the most exciting fun bikes.
Never want something else.
Maybe a new Versys.
Probably Kawasaki improved some details.
Nice, but not neccesary at all.
It is perfect allready!

That's it for now,
Ben Zwart

Welcome Ben! I'm a Dutchman too...came to Canada in 73 with my parents. It was actually an online review by a dutch motorcycle journalist that got me interested in the Versys. So far a very satisfying choice!

Lovin every minute of it!

@twowheels: my biased opinion about driving around in Nederland is that it gives me a lot of pleasure. Totally different from driving anywhere else.
Mainly because of the absolutely flat country and a whole lot of curvy dikes.
Meaning you have almost everywhere a wide view until the horizon, a lot of farmers and all this backroads in straight lines and sharp corners moving around the farms.
A whole lot of rivers and canals with dikes inviting you riding illegal high speed.

And then it is very nice to tavel each year into other countries and enjoy what ever they have on the menu for bikers.

@all of you: thank you for your words of welcome.
