, just picked up a 2012 yellow and black 2 weeks ago. First Bike. I was checking out this forum alot before the purchase... Thanks for all the info.
I got a pretty good deal on it through the COSTCO program. $7200 OTD, plus a $200 COSTCO gift card.
I am a fan of LEDS and I've put a few on the new Versys so far. I put some VLED 1800 lumen Cree LED's in the high and low beams (big improvement over stock), a cheap 6000K projector led for the city light and some cheapo ebay LED COB DRL strip lights.
I also added some amber LEDS for the turn signal and changed the thermal flasher with an electronic one so I don't get the hyper-flash. Works good.
I needed a small bit of storage, so I added a Bags Connection Daypack tankbag. It's a nice bag. I really like the tankring mounting.
Not much riding weather left in MN, but I've managed to put 300 miles on her so far. Still in the break in period, so have not seen what she is capable yet, but so far I am really happy. If anyone wants any more info on the LEDS, let me know.
