Ok -- so .. I am getting a very strong itch to trade up to a concours 2008 from a 2011 versys.
There is a used bike dealer in my area, looks like I may be able to trade up for 4k ..
Anyone have experience with these? I have heard great reviews and tried it, but not long term.
I often ride 2up which is my main reason, also the V just isn't comfortable on the highway, even after a lot of mods.
Also ABS / stronger brakes seem like a good idea as the V doesn't stop so well when its loaded or has 2 people on her.
I know that the 2008 vs 2010 is missing some awesome upgrades, but the price jumps another 2-3k for them.. and to me, dont seem worth it.
