New Los Angeles Versys Owner

New Versys 650 rider. Originally from Lincoln, England now residing in Los Angeles, CA.

I'm joint owner of the Versys with a mate from England. He gets to use it when he is over here and I use it the rest of the time. As well as the Versys I have a 2003 Suzuki SV1000S and a 2014 Aprilia Shiver 750.

The gratuitous trackday picture is from a few years ago at Streets Of Willow on a mates old 600 track bike.

Cheers!

from a bit east in Texas. Actually, at the moment, a lot farther east in central Maine. Nice fleet of bikes, especially the Aprilia Shiver. Fascinating machine with a stupid name IMHO.

Not too far from me then. I'm up in the 91723.

Last year when I was in England I noticed a lot more Harleys around. To each their own.

Thank you. The 750 is a lot of fun to ride.

Damn your real close to some great roads. One of my favorites is ACH to Wrightwood to eat at the Grizzly Cafe...

I'm up at ACH or Azusa most weekends. But my weekends are about to get bonkers until mid -September. Shoot me a pm after that as I'll be up for a ride.

Cheers.

Sounds Good, I usually go on the week days to avoid all the traffic but will do a weekend every once in awhile...
