New from SE MI

Not new to bikes, just new to the New 2013 Versys my wife bought.

her new bike:



her old bike, 2000 Ninja250, for sale





My other rides:

My Ninja 250, also for sale. I just got back from a 2400 mile trip on this little bike. it was amazing. I can now say I have toured on a 250


The virago 920 (wife tried it out and doesn't care for this one as much)
It's now a project to become a tracker




The KLR, my main bike for long trips ( the blue one)



And finally the CB550 Frankenbike I just sold for $300

Your wife has exceptional taste in motorcycles as the 2013 in white is the best of the V's. Nice collection of bikes too. I wish I had the $$, storage, and understanding wife that would allow more than one motorcycle.

Thanks!

She talked ME into getting the 250, because I was stealing hers too often! She also stole me new motorcycle theme. White and black. that's ok. I'm going to get a 2015 I think

as you can see, we have our priorities in line. Cheap cars,Cheap house, and right now, 6 bikes.


I'm going to be buying a 6x12 enclosed trailer to use as a garage until we get into a house.

Wow, she can flat-foot her Versys. Wish I could do that.

Looks like I've lost the status of the only person riding a Versys around Monroe.

Hah, sorry about that. Hopefully I'll join you and the wife, if I don't go for the Ulysses!
