Got my Versys last year and just love it! I use it for commuting to work, doing shorter road trips with my husband, and just about everything I used the car for.............which we've pretty much given up and gone to 100% mc.s.
Glad to have found this site, I don't "speak motorcycle" really, but get a lot out of what other people are doing with and to their bikes.
Can't say enough good things about this bike, I'm not a super strong rider and it's light and responsive enough to handle city traffic and stable enough to handle some pretty good cross winds out in the boonies. Does the mountain beautifully and can still carry it's share of gear.
A great bike.
