I rode every day many years ago, it was my favorite thing. Then I rode a moped for a few years and subsequently spent years riding a bicycle. I bought a Yamaha Vino 125 scooter a few months back and it has been good but it isn't enough. After much research it came down to the V-Strom and the Versys. I had a V-Strom 650 that I tried to buy but the dealer accidentally transferred it to another store and it got snapped up. Thus I will soon be riding a new 2008 Versys which I bought online. I'm tempted to spend some $$ on lighting, hugger, horn, Givi, etc. right now so it will be here by the time the bike arrives in 8 days. Thanks for all the information I have found already in this forum.

You won't regret your decision!

You'll be very happy with your choice. As for lighting, look for 08Versys' posts. He added driving lights to his and posted excellent directions on installation and modification. I copied his setup and the lights are VERY bright and look great.

Good accident by the dealer. You will be pleased with the Versys.
