First new bike EVER! Took delivery yesterday of brand new 2014 Versys 660 ABS for onl

I am a sport bole rider mostly but, after a bunch of very naughty speeding tickets, I took the real fast stiff to trackdays on my very modified '02 Triumph Daytona 955i. So I got this crazy deal on the wonderful Candy Lime Versys. I love it. Now comes the customizing.

enjoy! It won't go much over 100, but It'll keep up with your daytona in the twisties.

Congrats! My Versys was also my first new bike and vehicle of any kind! I've had it 3 years now and still love it every time I ride it!

Congrats. You might want to turn spell check on.

I came very close to buying a '14 after I saw the '15s, but decided I could get a few more miles out of my '11.

Congrats. I also came off sportbikes, enjoying them only at trackdays now. The Versys handles well enough to have fun in the twisties, and is comfortable for touring. Best of both for me!

Welcome!

New member that joined in 2015, first post

I am not much of a forum poster and never ride with anyone else. I do like my Versys a lot however. But, as most of my riding is on track these days I didn't have a lot of questions, etc. I actually haven't ridden the bike since April 2019
