New Owner in St. Louis

Bought my first Versys a couple days ago... '14 model. Enjoy the performance. Noticed I'm riding faster than I think. I'm stepping off a cruiser and would still like to get a little more weight off my wrists for comfort. Can anyone direct me to a good set of risers? Thanks in advance.

Welcome aboard. Take a look at motowerk.com for quality risers. Speedy makes excellent products. They aren't necessarily cheap but worth every penny IMHO.

Welcome! Let me know if you want to ride sometime. St. Louis is only a hop skip and a jump over the river for me

I'll send you a PM when we head out, thanks. My friends all have metric bikes and enjoy wrenching on them. Not sure how many decent weekends we'll get anymore, but of course I'm itching to roll.

Definitely hear you on that one.
I'll take what I can get though. I work 8-5 Monday - Friday but have the weekends off.
Any holiday the banks have off I am off.
I used to ride the quarry roads all the time back in 2008 and '9.

I like (and recommend) the ROX 2" Risers, because they do NOT necessarily bring the bars towards you. You control whether they are UP, FORWARD, or BACK.

I definitely agree. Have had both and definitely prefer the rox risers.
