Greetings from MDSNO Albany NY area
Hi! I bought a well ridden 85 LTD 454 this past June to see if I still had interest in riding and found I am very interested. The previous 2 years have have seen me at the forums, advrider, klr.net and of course the Great White Knights 454 forum. Previous bikes were a long time ago. I had a Kawi 900 or 1000 cc 2 stroke in 1979.. (scares me to think about it). I sat on the Versys yesterday at Troy City Garage where the V lists at about $5600 without the prep and freight. I want to learn... what are the best rain gear and clothing options to extend the riding season, and where can I get sound and navigation system in my helmet?
While selling the 4 major Japanese brands the dealer told me It has not been hard to keep bikes in stock and that manufacturers have canceled their yearly trade shows b/c of the economy. The V was a comfy fit for my 5'11 frame. I may be here a while to share in your enthusiasm. It's easy to see you V riders are having the majority of the fun.
