Hoy hoy from Columbus,Ohio
Hey all, last week I finally got around to get a choke cable for my trusty '02 KLR 650. Of course I had to go to the dealer to get that taken care of. While there, I was checkin' out the Suzi DL 1000. When I got home I did some research, that was not really favorable to the bike. And I talked to a co-worker that said the same thing.
Friday I went back to the dealer to pick up the cable. While I was waiting I happened to spy the Versys. I looked it over closely, and when I got home did the research. This time, most all of it was favorable. I've been perfectly content with the performance of my KLR 650, but I haven't been using it to it's full potential as a dual sport bike. Since my ownership, I've only had it off road twice.
So seeing what the reviews had to say, I thought the Versys would be better suited to what I need in a bike. Yesterday I went back to talk turkey, and sometime this week I'll trade in my KLR for a Plasma Blue Versys. I also will be getting the side cases and tall wind shield. And when I get some money back on all the removed KLR upgrades I may get the gel seat.
Well, I hate leaving the KLR forum. That group was so helpful when needed. But I'm looking forward to meeting a new group of fellow bike owners. So for now
