Lurking And Dreaming

Hello
I do not have a Versys at this time. I had the opportunity to ride a friends a few weeks ago while doing a country road ride. Have to say it is just as versatile as any dual sport I've ridden. I would not want to trial ride with it, but a dirt road won't scare me. I hope to sell my XR650l to upgrade to a Versys in the near future. Wish me luck and thanks for letting me lurk.

Your bike has given me so many ideas. Keep up the good work, and I hope you don't mind if/when I'm on a Versys I barrow a few of your farkles.

Stop dreaming about and just go ahead and buy one - it's only money.

Thanks for the kind words Go for it! MY style of outfitting a V is slightly different than some, but it's working for me. Glad I could inspire you...
Now get off your DUFF and go get one.......

I combined a KLR650 and Ninja 650R into the Versys 650. Then added the KLX250S for dual sporting.
