Today I join you!

So today I stopped riding my Ninja 500R forever. It was a fun bike at 100mph, but not for 100 miles. Turned it in for a blue Versys this morning and I'm still giddy.

For the first time in decades, my 6'6" frame fit a bike. I sat upright. Arms slightly bent. and best of all, my back didn't hurt after an hour on the road.

Seattle riding is always hit or miss, and since it's a commuter bike, rain or shine, I think it'll be a lot better for riding the 30+ miles each way into town.

Yippie!!!

Welcome from your neighbor in Redmond.

We have dozen or so V's in the area and managed to get 5 together for a great ride up Mt Baker last week.

If you are interested in getting together for a ride let us know. We are loosely called the Viagra's (VersysIntoAdventuresAndGreatRidesAnytime)

again from your neighbor in Bonney Lake...

I do 71 miles round trip to Bellevue almost always on the V, like the bike more each day, really makes the commute a LOT better!

Come out for a ride sometime...

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!
