I just bought an 09 with Happy trails luggage and a bunch of little mods to prep it for adventure riding, looking forward to getting some miles and views this summer.

I'm a new Versys rider in Seattle as well. Great bike and a great place to ride it! What's your first trip going to be on that bike?

No trips are planned yet, just have a few days of commuting the long way home on sunny days. It has alot more power than my dr650, so that is fun but I need to be careful.
I am hoping to get out and explore some forest roads as we get further into spring, and would be happy to meet local riders.

I plan on hitting some forest roads when time/weather allows. You can either PM me here or sign up at http://www.meetup.com/seattleriders
I tend to post most of my rides on there. Not many folks sign up for the non-street rides.

Hi! I'm a new rider from Sammamish (eastside) as well, got a 2009 V in December. Been looking for folks to ride with as well. Don't know any other riders, so I've been going around by myself. Took a long ride this weekend up around North Bend and Snoqualmie falls, great time, but alone off on the forest roads, not my wisest decision. I also registered on the soundrider site, but I'd welcome the opportunity to meet and ride with some other folks.

looks nice man! Are those different forks? Love the luggage and black paint.

But, if I read your post correctly, you bought the bike like that. I think the only prep, then, you'll need is gasoline. Windscreen, luggage, crash bars, handguards. Check. Have fun on it!
