New Owner, Ottawa Ontario, 2013

Hello everyone,

Im a brand new owner of a 2013 Magnesium Grey 650 and come from an 03 KLR650. I have been wanting a Versys since 2009, and a member here since Oct 2010. I look forward to personalizing my V, and also looking for the best threads to start taking care of any issues our community has found to improve our bikes.

Welcome from Ottawa. Is that the 2009 that the Ottawa Goodtime center had? What area are you in?

Check out aviciouscycle.ca for accessories like crash bars, windshields, etc.. They were recently purchased by twisted throttle in the US.

I hadn't heard that and I hope it is a good thing. I've been a Vicious Cycle fan ever since I bought my V. Good people there, with good prices.

Introducing myself

Hello folks,

I just joined the ranks of Versys owners when I purchased a 2007 model earlier this year. Although the previous owner did drop it once, it has been well taken care of and is in great shape.

I am in Ottawa out in the Orleans area. I have a few friend that I ride with occasionally, but always interested in making new friends.

Welcome. I too went from a 98 KLR to an 07 Versys and I'm still very happy I did. I just got back from a Horizons Unlimited Rally in Perry Sound this past weekend. Great bunch of people, lots of fun and all adventure focused. My world travel dreams are limited, so for now the V does is all with no problems. Until Kawasaki ships the KLE 500 to Canada or develops a KLR 800, I'm sticking with mine.
