From the Netherlands, Amsterdam

Hi everybody,

My name is Ad, and I'm from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I've been riding an old Kawasaki KLE 500 for about a year now. I really like the Versys 650, mostly because I do more street riding than off road. Firmer suspension, better brakes, injection and low running costs are the properties I'm looking for. I really adore my KLE, but the need for upgrading is greater :P

I have a lot of catching up to do here on this forum.

Cheers!

Thank everybody

As to the PINK

Well, back in the early 90s that was a hip and funky color to have on your bike I think it's absolutely marvellous, all non-biker ladies I've met here in Amsterdam really do love it. And it's kinda old-skool / retro looking too
The thieves don't fancy stealing it, so it works out great for me.
