2015 Versys 1000 in Candy Burnt Orange
Not new to riding or Kawasaki but this is my first "New" bike since 1998.
I still have the last new one I bought, a VN800 which I have modified ~a bit
~. Can't post pics yet but if you imagine old school soft tail chopper you'd be close. Other Kwakas gone but not forgotten include a GT550 and VN1500FI.
The shed also currently has a BMW R1200RT, ex Police, squeezed in there. The Beemer has been my go to bike for the last 2 years. It's an awesome piece of machinery and the most comfortable long distance tourer I have ever ridden, however, life is too short to stagnate so I have been considering something different to play with for a little while.
Was seriously contemplating the Ninja 1000 (Z1000SX) until I spied the new V1K. Don't mind saying the old face Versys' had me covering my eyes.
I'm a short Ar*e so the Versys seat height put me off a bit, until I tried for size, not much different to the Beemer in reach (still on my toes) and much more comfortable for me than the N1K.
Looking forward to picking your collective knowledge base for info and sharing my experiences with the big Ranga .. (non Aussies may need to Google that
