I'm new to this forum and wanted to give a quick introduction. Just bought an 09 today, the green one. I really liked the 2010. I had a hard time finding one, but finally did. Even though the dealer offered a fair price on it, because of the current specials on the earlier models, I didn't like it $1300 better. Also, I think the green really stands out and I preferred the blacked out trim around the engine.
I've been riding for a pretty good while and like all kinds of bikes, although not too big into cruisers. I currently have:
04 Honda ST1300
99 Suzuki DR650
87 Kaw Concours
and the Versys
As you can see, I needed a new bike like I need a hole in the head, but what can I say; I'm addicted. The Connie is going to be for sale shortly once I finish a couple of things up. It has a lot of sentimental value and I couldn't let it go, but finally decided that someone else should get the same enjoyment from it that I did.
I'm getting pretty long winded so better stop for now. BTW, don't be put off by my member name. I'm actually a pretty nice guy. Christmas is when I become Scrooge-like. Don't have anything against Christmas itself, it's the commercialism that gets me grumpy.
Anyway, I got some good information from this forum so thought I would join.
Also, I've traveled a fair bit on my other bikes and hope to do some on the Versys as well.
