Hello from Oklahoma

I have been snooping around here for a while and figured I should introduce myself.

I picked up a new 2012 Versys is April and have over 8k miles on it so far. The main reason I got was for riding between northwest Oklahoma and central Arkansas where my wife is. I got a job working in the oil fields out here and my wife is stuck until we sell our house.

I also have a DRZ 400SM but that wasn't going to work for 500+ mile days so my son is using for going collage and work. It is a blast in town and in the tight stuff but not on the hwy.

So far I am really happy with the Versys. It will drone down the hyw at 80 no problem and is fun on the twisty roads when I hit Arkansas. It is really a good all around bike. So far I have put on a Seatconcepts seat and Oxford heated grips. Planing and hand guards and a bigger screen soon to help with the colder months.

Anyways that to everyone for all the helpfill info they have put on this forum and I hope I can add to it.

Hang in there, Grog. Hope you get that house sold and get your wife/life back.

Someday is not a day of the week.

Came from A DRZ400sm myself and totally agree with you about its fun side and its pitfalls!
