Thumbs up Victoria BC Canada-New Owner

Hi all, I just picked up a new Red 2008 Versys on Saturday.

So far, so good!

Immediate mods planned is a headlight bulb/bulbs upgrade and maybe a sidestand fix (bigger pad), beyond that, I will be fiddling with the stock suspension settings, tire pressures etc. for now.

It looks like we have a great Versys resource in these forums, I look forward to making some contributions myself.

Cheers, Roland

PS ..... Just thought I'd mention I've been riding for 40+ years and had a motorcycle shop for over 10 years. I have owned over 100 bikes and the versys is my only current ride.....for now!

I ran into a couple of Harley riders from BC this weekend; maybe they'll be converts?

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the welcome guys.

I am fiddling the new ride to suit me, although my time is currently dominated by a move to a new house! I'll be moved in by the 30th and then there will be some settling in to do. We always seem to find time to ride though!

As for converting Harley riders, they have to convert themselves. I think we will see many coverts from the lesser all-purpose bikes. By the way, this is my first new Kawasaki purchase and my last Kawasaki was a 1966 Samurai 250.
