New Member, New Versys!

Hello to everyone from Northern Colorado! I just took delivery (this past Saturday) of my 2011 Kawasaki Versys KLE650 and fell in love with her right away! So light, nimble, quick steering, comfy...and with a motor that revs much higher than I expected from a parallel twin. Looking forward to making new friends and riding everywhere.

Welcome!! We'll have to meet up sometime and ride some of the Rockies fire roads. I have the same year and color as yours, but I'm painting my red parts in a Sun Yellow Pearl. Tons of mods and $$ pumped into this bike already. Recommend you do the brake mod soon. EBC HH pads front and rear and replace the brake lines with Galfer Steel Braided Lines. The difference in brake feel and stopping power is phenomenal.

You got a good deal! Virtually zero miles and just over $6k is very good. What mods are you planning? I can help you with the brake lines if you've never done this type work before. Start to finish its only a 1.5hr job. I'm in Fort Collins.
