Finally, a Versys owner!

Greetings from the windy city.
Picked up a new 2014 team green Versys last week. I have about 225 miles on it so far, I find I can't wait to get out and ride. It has been a completely different experience than riding my Ducati Monster, a fun bike but very different. Already replaced the mirrors, my only other complaint is the seat, we are not getting along very well, but I just can't stop riding this bike.

Good luck choosing a better saddle - lots of choices. Don't have one but it seems Seat Concepts saddles are popular. I like my Corbin but many think it's too firm.

You can raise the front of the OEM saddle for $2. Works for ME!

Let me guess. You tape a Cialis capsule to it, yes, no?

Are you Kidding, or serious?
Can the front of the OEM seat be raised?

Thanks !

I've been using a Sargent seat on my other bike, it is comfortable and expensive. I am intrigued by the seat concepts option, but for now I think I'll give the $2 mod a try.
