Presenting from southern Spain

Hi everyone.

I'm Michel, Belgian citizen but living in Andalucia (Guess why )
49 years old and more than 30 injuring my pants on all sorts of motorcycles.
I actually own a 99 Speed Triple and a 08 510 Husky.
Looking for a comfortable everyday bike i am decided to buy a Versys this spring.

Hope to have good time on this forum in spite of my poor English.

to everybody.

Thanks for the welcome.

I have to finish some works in the house before i go for the V and I better do the works first so I´ll be relax for the brake-in.
I suppose I'll purchase the bike in the second half of April.

Where to Buy ?

Where in southern spain did you buy your Versys, and How much was it ?

I am in Gibraltar and saw a versys just recently and am quite interested in looking more closely at one.

Thanks
Chris

I bought it from Palmeto in Málaga trough a friend who has a workshop in Fuengirola.
I paid 7.699€ and he will make the 2 first maintenances for free.
I suppose it will be cheaper in Gibraltar as it's tax free.
