New from Dallas area

I just signed up as a "lurker". I am in the market for a second bike and really like the looks of the Versys. I saw a couple of '09s today in North Dallas Suzuki/Kawasaki. I currently ride a Honda Goldwing, but I want something smaller for every day riding around town and dual-purpose.

Hey, welcome! I'm in Dallas as well.

If you're not doing anything on Sunday, come have lunch with us at Spring Creek in Bedford. There's a post on it in the General section.

Good Deal. Hopefully one day we can get a group of guys in the area to make a trip to glenn rose tx. for some of the best bbq i've ever eaten. not to far from lake granbury and close to river rafting and canoe rentals. But for now bedford is pretty centrally located.

Have you read this article, it says a lot about what the Versys is about: Not a dual purpose, more like all purpose.

Well I'm off on Sundays and Mondays. So Sundays are always good for me. If anybody wants to come up with a date just say so. They open at 11:00am if you like ribs you better get there early they serve them till they run out. If you like home made cobblers your in luck also.

I had a Versys and I sold it when I bought my Goldwing. Now I wish I had kept it and bought the Goldwing as a second bike. You can't go wrong with the Versys. It is a great all around bike and less than half the weight of a Goldwing. I love my Goldwing, but I can see another Versys to keep it company.
