Old new guy

Just bought a left over '12 Versys, Black. Goin' to pick it up on Tuesday. Currenty motorcycles are '01 KLR with 90,000+ miles and '04 ZX-10R. The KLR has been to 34 states including Alaska and much of Canada and Mexico. Still runs pretty good but showin' its age. Oh, yeah, $5,800, cash.

I have an O.E.M. 16T front sprocket and some Grap-on grips on the way. Already have a magnetic drain plug. Will do a stainless front brake line and Speedbleeders soon and probably swap a Throttlemeister from one of the other bikes.

Hello there "old new guy" from another old newish guy with also the best colour of Versys (& the same year!)
You have a useful array of 'bikes there now in your stable, & you also seem to like to pound the miles, you may also be the 1st one to 'enjoy' the Versys seat after so much travelling on a KLR!!!!


Anyway, WELCOME!!!!

Hell, I thought the KLR seat was pretty good.

Welcome

Good brake pads like ebc hh make much more of a difference than brake lines on the front. I've done both.
