Another Aussie member

Hi guys, I haven't got a Versys yet but really like the look of the 2015 650.
I've got a Ducati Monster 696 and a Suzuki DR650 at the moment and i'm thinking of selling both to get one of these. We have crappy quality roads were i live (country NSW) and the Ducati is way too unforgiving in the suspension department for my 48 year old body.However it is really good on the smooth roads and I love the sound and feel of that mighty V-twin.The DR650 eats up the bumps but lacks in the high speed handling and power department, while being great around town.
My initial thoughts were to buy a Ducati Multistrada but the one I want is about $32,000, which is way too much for me to spend on a bike.
The Versys 650 would cover all my needs minus the V-Twin engine but I could probably get by without that.(Save 20 Grand and keep my marriage )
