Hi everyone

Just got my 2nd hand 2012 Versys 650 ABS in black with 13 000 km yesterday and drove it for about 300km to get it back home. Really enjoying it so far. Previous owner added: new dual purpose tyres, new chain, Puig screen, hagger, handguards, custom made luggage rail and soft pannier bags, crash bars, tail tidy, light cover.

Only problem so far is buffeting which with is really bad over 80 km/h with the Puig screen. Might consider going back to stock.

Looking forward to many years of fun riding this bike!
