From overseas to the US

Hey Folks,

Currently in college and from overseas from Europe, I just got my Versys. I do not own a car in the US, the Versys is my only transportation bike.

I got a rather long history of riding, bikes included a Yamaha 850 TDM, a Aprilia 650 Pegaso and the latest was in 2010-2012 a BMW R1200 GS Triple Black, which I do miss dearly...

The Kawa does a great job. I am rather tall and feel comfy enough.

Bought the bike from a gentleman who maintained the bike nicely. Accessires include Happy Trail luggage system, Sargeant seat, Handguards and a Zero Gravity Windshield.

I underestimated the Ohio wind and two weeks after I got the bike it got knocked over (I suspect the wind, but with the neighborhood I do not really know), thus I mounted recently the original windshield again (WAY TOO SHORT) and Pro Taper ATV Handlebars, which are nice and high for my size.

I do enjoy also scooters, in fact I have been part of racing championships in France and Belgium, and currently I am on a custom build here in the US, in my tiny college apartment.
