New V owner in the great NW

Hi all,

Bought my new Versys just a few weeks ago on 7-12-08, picked it up the very next day. I love it!!
Haven't put a whole lot of miles on it yet, unfortunately, since I travel a lot for work. Still doing the break-in period, actually. If the weather is nice, I'll finish it this weekend.

Haven't done any mods or additions to it yet, really. Bought a FirstGear Silverstone Magnetic Tank Bag. Will pick it up this weekend and I'm hoping it fits well.
More things I'm thinking about:
New seat (probably from Spencer)
Soft bags (stay with Firstgear)
Clean up the tail
Stop "buzzing" front end before it begins...

Also, anyone else in the Pac NW on here? I live in Vancouver, WA, just north of Portland, OR.

Good to have another V rider in SW Wash. I live in Ridgefield and got my ride in June. I love the bike, it fits me great and has plenty of power. It's all stock but will be adding some goodies soon. I'm running with a backpack right now but would like to go with a tank bag. Let me know how you like the Firstgear one. I've been eyeing the Cortech's but havn't made the decision yet. Great forum isn't it....Scott

Thumbs up Yeah another NW rider

I hope you're not a Duck fan

Did you make it to Washogual over the weekend?

We're on opposite ends of I-5 but if you're ever up north send me a PM.
