Just Drove Ten Hours to pick up my Versys on 10/4/14
Almost exactly seven years since some idiot hospitalized, and almost killed me on my 600mi FZ1; I now finally have a new bike!
I live in Overland Park KS, and left at 4am on Saturday to pick up a 2011 Versys with 735miles at a non-Kawi dealership in Muskogee OK. I got it for $4300 out the door, loaded it up in the back of my truck, and headed home. Had about thirty minutes to ride it after unloading, then had to get ready for a wedding.
I wasn't planning on buying a bike this weekend, but when they accepted my cash offer over the phone on Friday, I figured that I'd have to be stupid to pass it up.
So far, I'm liking the bike allot! Yes I need to add and change some things to it, but it might as well be new, and at 6'2" seems exceptionally comfortable and easy to throw around. I'm trying to make a list of first mods, and any input would be appreciated.
Also, is it normal for the chain to sling oil on top of the muffler, and have it smell like burning? I wonder if the chain was over oiled at some point?
