New Versys Owner in ATL

hey y'all - picked up a green '09 Versys today and am super pumped! My only previous bike was an older KLR, so I'm a bit blown away by the power this thing has...in a good way. I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time on this forum, so just wanted to introduce myself, and maybe find some riding buddies in the area.

Also, if anyone is looking for a new '09 Versys in the Atlanta area, they have one more (blue) at Metro Cycles for $5800 out the door!

Aight...gotta go take the woman for a cruise around the block!

Hey, we'll look for you on the road. Several here in ATL ... one red in Roswell, one green one somewhere nearby, my blue one here in Norcross. Got mine in Feb. Moved up from a dual sport, too.

Just got home from a short ride. Plan on commuting regularly now that it's warm.

Be safe, and congrats!!!

Congrats on the new V from right next door in Bama! My brother used to live in Dahlonega just north of you, used to love to ride the curves there! Hope to make it up there again one day. Ride safe and have fun!

I have a red one in Roswell, but I think there is still another one near me. Welcome. Let us know when you want to ride!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

enjoy, the power of that bike it is awsome, not enough to be over the top and get into serious trouble but enough to have some great fun in my humble opinion.

wow, there are a lot of ATL connections here. i lived in stone mtn for a few years before coming to TN. visited my sister there last week. don't miss the traffic, do miss the cycling and those sweet, sweet hills.

welcome to the tribe, brookhaven.

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

That would be awesome but I can't on the 22nd. I saw a red V pulling into Cycle Gear in Roswell this afternoon.

I'll be in Atlanta 5/21-5/23 for a concert Saturday at The Earl. If something gets setup up, I'll try to swing by.

BTW, does anybody know if the area around The Earl (East Atlanta) is safe to park a bike. My first time in Atlanta and a bit nervous about leaving the bike parked for a couple hours.

I think you should be fine in the Earl parking lot, but some of the other lots around there a pretty sketchy. That part of town has a lot of good and bad neighborhoods.

How about the 23rd. I love to ride Sundays. Somehow the bike feels faster. Anyone else is wants to ride their Vs on the 23rd?

Sorry that whole weekend is out for me. Most weekends I am free at least one of the two days.
