I took some, many crappy phone pictures. Many places I stopped the rain was my nemesis, didn't want to soak my good camera. And it WAS a blast....until Kansas. I'll write that up later...Fahk that state.

Actually, we 1000 owners are the new kids on the block but so far, the 650 guys have been quite tolerant. I'm looking forward to more 1000 owners joining up because this is an excellent site for good advice, mods ideas and lots of DIY stuff.

Hell, I'm well aware of that sir...just messing around.

I demoed a 650 Versys and a Concours, then the FJ-09 three times and the 1000 Versys three times.

Welcome from central Texas. Just curious, what did you like/dislike about the Concours? I came from a first gen Concours to the 2009 Versys and haven't looked back. Nothing really wrong with the Connie except the weight. I understand the second gen Connie is even better.

No no, I realize that...but when I was typing that comment the smiley
nearly filled the [I]entire[I] reply box! It was freaky on this end.
