Hi, my name is Robbie and I'm from central NC. I'm not a Versys owner (yet), but I'm considering either a 2014 leftover or possibly a 2015 (would have to wait on that). I'd like to post a few questions about the two.

My current ride is a 2001 Honda ST1100. Id like to get something newer with ABS that is lighter, more maneuverable and capable of some light dirt/gravel road exploring. Ill probably keep the ST (at least for now).

I'm out your way at least once a year (this year it'll be twice). Every May, I go out for a four day rally and camp in Stecoah (Kickstand Lodge). In mid October I'm going for the ST-Owners rally (Moonshine Creek Campground).

The Moonshine Creek Campground is in Balsam, yes. I've never been there before; this is my first time to this ST rally.
