Hello from East TN

I just purchased a 2015 Versys 650 LT and really enjoy the ride when I can get out what with this crazy weather. I plan to ride every back road here in East TN and Western NC this summer.

I do need to add a couple of accessories like lower pegs, I am almost 6'4 and that was a big factor in this purchase. I will also need to figure out how to power a GPS unit.

Looking forward to learning a lot from this forum and I sure hope the weather breaks soon so I can get the green monster out and get her broke in.

I was a neighbor of yours some years back. I went to grad school at UT Knoxville. Go Vols!

Out of curiosity what was your out the door price if you don't mind telling. A forum member in California was quoted $10445 OTD for a 2015 650 LT and that seems a bit high. Adding MSRP plus Cal. tax, title and registration and then subtracting that total from the $10445 quote still leaves $822 for the dealer in assorted fees and that seems rather steep.

Awesome buy, and extremely awesome roads where you are. The only downer is when you get caught behind a line of flat landers with no room to pass.

Thanks

Thanks, I see in the manual that there are some spares for fog lights and others that would be usable. Thanks for the input.
