Greetings from the Netherlands

Hello,

My name is Jeroen, living in the south of the Netherlands. I picked up my new Kawasaki Versys 650 about 3 hours ago. I can't get the smile of my face I hope to read and contribute in this forum.

Welcome! Make sure to add yourself to the site's member world map.

You can download a service manual for your bike in PDF form from the tech section of this forum. The manual for the 2010 and 2015 is a few pages into the thread.

Highly recommend the SW-Motech crash bars if there is even a minute chance of dropping your new bike on it's side. They've saved me a lot of money in prevented damage.

Welcome. But watch out. There was someone creeping up on your motorcycle. I can see his shadow in your photo.

Thnx for the warm welcome! Much appreciated!

This is my second bike. My first was a Triumph Street Triple R from 2011. I had it only one month, could not drive it anymore because of backpain. So i searched for i bike where i could sit straight.
The dealer had black and white versions on stock and made me a good offer :-) (of course i did loose money on the triumph but this pain i forgotten quick).
I will add myself on the members world map.

thnx and save driving for all of you!

regards

Jeroen
