Red face New owner

I joined this Forum in Nov 2012, when I first became interested in the Versys. I finally acquired mine, picking it up on my recent birthday. Happy Birthday to me! I don't remember whether I introduced myself in 2012 or not, so here I am.

I sold an R1100GS with 106,000 miles on it before I bought my green Kaw, known as Kawabunga around our house. It has about the same riding position as the Beemer, but being 100 pounds lighter makes it much easier to handle, whether riding or pushing around the driveway. I've had to reduce my inputs, as the new bike felt almost twitchy at first. I have almost 800 miles on it, so I'm occasionally allowing the revvy little engine do what it wants, which is rev. It's quick!

Enough for now. I live in one of the most beautiful areas on earth, so I think I'll go for a ride.
