Time to Say Goodby and Farewell

After a long and enjoyable run with the forum and miles and miles aboard my 2008 Versys 650 (red of course) it's time to say farewell and ride safely. The venerable Versys, that served me very well and never let me down, has gone to a new home.

The fleet still includes two lightweight machines well suited to the narrow roads through the woods of central Maine - a BMW G310R and a Suzuki TU250X. It also includes a pair of Can Am Spyder RTs well suited to the expansive distances of Texas and southwest America. Both my charming wife and I are officially senior citizen riders (67 and 74 respectively), and we find the Spyders comfortable and confidence-inspiring long distance touring machines.

I'll miss the Versys and the excellent group of subscribers to the forum, but all good things come to an end. We'll still keep a lookout for Versys riders as we travel and if you happen to notice a black and a red Spyder travelling together, give a wave in return. Cheers one and all.
