Bought a Versys, Checking in

Hello everyone.

I was commenting to my wife the other day how I used to buy bikes looking for the fastest, now I go for the most comfortable.

Just picked up this Versys last weekend. It will replace the TDM850 I had been riding. I like that when the road turns gravel I don't have to turn around. So much of what is great to see can't be accessed on pavement.

The TDM850 looks like the same type of bike as the Versys.

Enjoy your new steed. I only see one helmet. Does your wife ride with you?

Comfort, that's a good thing. And you can keep going down those roads you like. Enjoy.

She was on her own bike, which was out of view in the other picture.

They are Heidenau K60. 140/80x17 rear, 110/80x19 front.
Was thinking of changing to a set of Avon Distanzia's though.

You gotta love the "barbie" bikes from the early 90s. The klrs looked lime that as well. Fits well with your wife though.
