Howdy. I am new to the forum. I am 43 years old. I am looking for another Versys to buy (like new, to modify so I can leave my new one stock). I grew up on CR's back in the 70's, and I raised my son on a CR and then a CR-F in the late 80's. My son and I both rode CBR's from 2005 on. The longest wheelie I have rode is eight miles, and my son, now 25 has rode one for 11 miles(on youtube). I have embraced the Versys as the bike that serves me the best, and keeps me out of trouble. I am a full time Deputy Sheriff who knows and understands two wheels and it is not only in my blood, but in my bones.:feedback::grinangel:

Just curious, when you say modify do you mean more HP or to set her up for more off road or with luggage for touring?

So Leslie are you going to visit us in the summer of 2012/13?
Phil, no definite plans yet for NZ tour, but have been talking with a few bike buddies to go over to NZ for a tour with some riding.

I've heard it is super expensive to rent a bike and it would turn out cheaper to purchase one and then sell it off after the tour.

How's your plan for Malaysia for 2012?

Thanks for the WELCOME!

Looking for ALL your input on mods on my 2nd Versys. I have done Hare Scrambles and Motocross in my twenties and thirties and have been coast to coast in my early forties. Mods to make the Versys BETTER all around, as I will use it for what it was made for and how I ride as well; 75% street, 25% back roads and dirt. Like I said with the wheelie stuff, a Goldwing is about 30 years down the road for me. The Versys fits me like a GLOVE, I just wish it was a 1000... Like everyone else does :) My son is on youtube: Memorial Wheelie Filmed from my helmet cam while I wheelied right next to him. :guilty: And, yup, born in '68. Thanks to ya'll for the WELCOME! :usa:
