New member from Santa Barbara, CA

Hello,

I'm registering on this forum because I am considering the new 2014 Versys as my next bike. I currently have about 5 months and 5000 miles riding experience on the 2013 Ninja 300 SE ABS. I'm interested in using the Versys as a lightweight touring bike and for commuting to work on the highway down from the mountains.

Any other rides here in the area?

I've posted a few in the past that are put on by a couple of groups i ride with. But so far no one from the forum has showed up.. You can find groups in your area at www.meetup.com put in your interest and zip code. I've found several really good groups that way.

Greetings from a half-marathon or so distance from you. V's a fine bike for Santa Barbara, but if you buy a new bike that has Dunlop tires, be careful on wet roads - those suckers are slippery. Lots of tire threads here for your Winter reading enjoyment.

Someday is not a day of the week.
