    Hey Folks, My name is Hannah, I'm a relatively new rider (not even a year into having my first bike yet) and am wondering about some of the expectations I should have about the motorcycle. In this case specifically the side stand. I've got an 2008 650 but I noticed two things about the side...

    Hello everyone, I am Jared (hence the name) and I recently started riding about a month and half ago after buying my 2008 Kawasaki Versys 650. I know what some of you are thinking, a 650 is a bit big for a starter bike. Believe me, I know but given my stature (6'4, 200) options are limited. I...

    Hello everyone! I bought a new 2016 Versys 650 about a month ago. It is my first bike and I've put about 1K miles on it thus far. I have added a power outlet and gear indicator and am looking into improving the seat, adding crash bars, and adding luggage (although not sure what I want to do...

    Hi, I'm a musician who travels 80kms (50miles) a day. I would love to buy a 2016 Versys 650 ABS as I love the look of the bike and was hoping someone could offer me some advice. I need to take a tenor saxophone with me everyday on my travels. The saxophone case is 85cm (33.5 inches) long and...

    New member here and also new to motorcycling. At my local dealer they have new 2014 Versys for $2000 less than the new 2015's. To me I really like the looks of the 2014's however it seems like the upgrades are pretty substantial on the new bikes "Shocks, rubber mounting, brakes, subframe, ect" ...

    Hello, I started my motorcycle ownership experience with old bikes, at 18 (in 2005), I started with a yamaha xj650, but quickly moved to a Kawasaki KZ 750, which I fell in love with. A few years ago, I picked up an old BMW R75/5 from a friend on the cheap, and then last year, I ditched my KZ...

    Hey, My name's Conner. I bought a Kawi Green 09 Versys about 2 months ago and have been loving it ever since. I started on and rode for a while a '74 KZ400 that I restored, which was a great bike. The Versys though is definitely a step up. No more carbs :) First, I'm glad a community like...

    Hey! '09 Versys, green, just bought it in North Carolina. Loving this bike - last was a Suzuki SV650S, and I wanted something that was similarly light and fun but with fewer visits to the chiropractor after multiple-hour rides ;) My biggest problem right now is that I'm just not very...

    Ive been riding on and off for about 10 years now. Mostly cruisers (I was afraid of what I might do if I got something I could get the front wheel off the ground on). I feel like I MIGHT have finally matured enough so I went out a couple of weekends ago and bought a "Supergreen" 2009 Versys...
