New to Versys and this forum. Been riding for a hundred years. First with wooden spoked bikes...... Own a 2001 Concours with 166,000+ miles (all mine) and a 2004 Zuk SV650s for fun. Bought the 2014 V at a estate sale really cheap, otherwise I would have passed on it. I'm a highway guy that has avoided (at all costs) dirt and gravel with the Connie (death on dirt!). Look forward to not having to muscle the 650 around like the connie, but I am sure I will miss the weight on longer rides. I do IBA stuff too, thus the miles on the Connie. Hope the V turns out to be a good ride for me. Thanks for the suggestions, mods etc. Looking forward to learning and listening.
