Welcome from Alaska. Did you get a NEW 2015 or older model?

Not the '15 model Jeff. I've had the Mk2 for a quite a while now. It's a 2010 model.
I'm a bit long in the tooth and after decades of litre sports bikes I went off on a 'biking tangent'.
I traded in my 06 zx10r and wee 06 xr125L Honda and bought myself the newer Versys.
Should've done it years earlier.
I may have enjoyed bikes as much as this in the past, but certainly none more so!

Ah yes, I understand. Nice that it adds up to 100% too.
