New from eastern NC

...and researching a Versys as my first street/commuter/touring bike. I currently ride a Suzuki DR350 SE on short jaunts around town and out to the farm. Just got back into riding after a 30 yr. layoff.
I'm 6'2" and would like to try a Versys out some day to see if I would be comfortable on it.

You'll love one! Most of us never got to test ride one before hand but it's so forgiving and easy to ride. Coming off a small thumper a V would seem like a god send on the road, and the fuel mileage is great for commuting. The low end torque is great for around town and the upright seating is great for older long distance riders. IMHO

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

Thanks, gentlemen. Maybe I'll run across one of you guys sometime and we can trade bikes for a few miles so I can try a Versys out.

More than likely quite a few are - I'm only 195 lbs...so tall and lanky.
