noob

new to this fourm. Call me versys curious. Jdrocks and his Rat bikes have me rethinking my next bike. Was heading to a wee strom to mod for my needs. But the bastardized beasts jdrocks has created have me REALLY curious of the capabilities of the versys.

kinda like JD I need to be able to slab along comfortably at 80 with a load and then be gravel road capable. NOT technical dirt track. I spend 320+ days a year on the bike. Including 6+ weeks on the road in the summers. (Im a teacher)

So whatever, this is my first post. I suppose I need to do another. Starting to look for a Versys to try out. Then figure out my budget...ugh...

You will not got wrong getting the V. I'm a teacher as well so I understand your need to extend riding during the summer.

Not that we're biased or anything like that but I believe most of us feel the Versys is a much better choice than a Wee-Strom.
