I recently decided it was time to move away from the stupid fast/incredibly uncomfortable sportbike world and get something that I could actually cover some ground on with some gear.
I just picked up my new (to me) 2012 Versys 650 last weekend and have already passed the 1k miles mark. Armed with a 30L duffle and my backpacking tent, I made the 7 hour drive through Yellowstone and into Grand Teton National Park. I spent the next few days exploring the Jackson, WY area before cruising over Teton Pass and promptly getting stuck in a freak snowstorm 100 miles from home. I thumbed a ride home and drove the truck down to pick up the bike the following day. Now she gets a few days off while I'm stuck at my desk working, but heated grips and saddlebags are in the mail!
