Howdy from PA
Ok...post 1 of required 2...I recently picked up a "new" 2011 Versys that a dealer in jersey had...dark red; no choice in the color, but I'm liking it. I've been through a lot of various bikes in the the last 40+ yrs. Got tired of the big baggers. Love my Sporty (#3) & was looking for a lighter, fun "backroad" bike.
Went through a couple of DR's...lots of fun, but something more roadworthy & not a thumper would be good.
I had a short stint with a wee-strom, but ended up selling it to a friend...just felt kinda bulky & top heavy.
I'm liking the V so far...handles great...very flickable, but the seat's gotta go! Ordered a sargent seat for the 1st mod...better windscreen, bags & handguards will follow.
