FNG from belgium

Hey there, just got my versys 2014 here.
I rode a cbr250r for two years and figured the time has come to sell it since I got a great trade-in deal in the dealership.
New versys also came with the touring package included, very curious to see how the riding goes with this much larger bike compared to the babyblade.

Greets from Belgium,

Redfox

You will find that once you lose balance at a stop it is harder to prevent it from dropping. (don't ask how I know ) As long as you can flat foot on the ground you'll be alright.

Welcome from Alaska! This site and the UK site have proven to be a VALUABLE wealth of information and knowledge. I've had my 2011 (new leftover) for a month or so now and while I haven't gotten to ride it due to the winter weather.....I have been modding it with the help of all the great and helpful members. You will have a blast on your V for sure.

FNG sounds more like an American term than a Belgium one to me....

Thanx AlaskaJeff and Britmick, i'll check out the site for sure.
And Jrider , back in the days when I was young I dropped my 50cc cross because i underestimated the weight, standing still in the garage. I know exactly what you're talking about so thanks for the heads up, really wouldn't want to drop the bike at any red lights x)
