Welcome aboard! Nice bike in your picture. As far as the two feet thing, I asked the same question awhile back & was told it was more of a confidence thing. I can see that. Not trying to be judgmental, only trying to be educated.
Anyway, you're right, the Bonneville is a great looking bike. If I weren't so big, I'd have one. I wouldn't trade my Versys for it, but I could see getting it as a second bike. Hell, it's so nice looking, I may get one & put it in the living room for decoration!
Good on you for taking the MSF course. I think every rider would benefit some from it. It's not going to help you win a moto gp, but who knows, you may learn something useful.
One last thing, I don't think you'll be disappointed with the Versys. It's a fun bike to ride.
Ok, so I lied about the 'one more thing' thing. What is '450voltsDC' about?
