Say hello to me and my blue '09

Hi, my name is Jon, and I'm a motorcycoholic.

No, I lie. I'm really an anything-with-wheels-oholic. Been lurking here for a month or three. Picked myself up an '09 Versys in Candy Plasma Blue new off the dealer's floor after spending a couple of years on a Virago 250. (First new vehicle ever; I was excited.) While I'm predictably already looking toward my next ride, I'm also looking to make the most of my current, and to help anyone else do the same if I'm able.

I must say this forum's been a great help and wealth of information so far. Thanks to everybody.

You are in the right place Jon! And admitting you have the problem is not necessarily going to help in this case. Enjoy your Versys!

Welcome aboard! The V is the best bike ever. Of course, my opinion is slightly biased.

Welcome 80 Watt Hamspter,
Candy blue Versys is a Nice ride for sure. If you get adventourouse and want to explore North to ALASKA give me a shout. The extra ground clearance and tall suspention is nice on the frost heaves. :-)
