Talking Hi from Ralegih

I just picked up my 09 Versys on Tuesday and I am just thrilled with the bike. Prior to this I have always ridden cruisers (04 V-Star chopped and made a rigid and 06 HD street Bob 18" Apes) And after putting the first 100 miles on the bike I had no idea what I had been missing. The way the bike handles is just a dream, everytime I ride I have a grin from ear to ear. I wanted to thank everyone in the forum because I did a lot of research here prior to buying the bike. And I must say everything that has been said has been right on the money. The bike is a lot of fun, the seat is the worst thing I have ever sat on, and believe I have sat on some bad seats, and the mirrors do vibrate like crazy at around 3500 rpm. All in all I thrilled and can't wait to ride some more. First mod do something about that seat. But I am not going to let that stop me from tearing up some miles

Welcome to the forum, lots of good info on here. I live in Nashville, about 40 miles east of you. My previous bike was an old Harley Sportster and I'm glad I made the transition to the V.

Welcome neighbor! Maybe once you get the break-in taken care of, we might want to round up some peeps and go to the mountains! I know there are atleast 2 more in the area!
