First Versys Tour

5 days, 975 miles and 3 mountain passes through Washington and Oregon. Can't continue to say how much I LOVE THIS BIKE! Performed like a dream, even loaded with gear and going over the passes. Still had plenty of guts to keep up with my BF's SV1000.

For our next adventure I would like to put some more aggressive tires on for some off-pavement fun. I only saw one discussion back in 2017, with not much to go on, so asking again... What are other riders switching to?

So far it's been challenging finding an exact fit, especially for the front tire. Has anyone else made the change yet? And if so... what are you running on?

I noticed you have an aftermarket exhaust on yours. Have you noticed any perfomance difference?

Have not noticed any difference in performance... It's just much deeper and louder ;-)
