Just picked up a Versys this week and so far I'm liking it. Sorting out the differences vis a vis the V Strom I keep at the 'winter palace' in Guatemala. So now I am riding two great bikes in two of the most dangerous riding environments in the world. Some time in a few weeks I may post some comments as to my subjective comparison of the Versys versus the V Strom. Until then I will be trolling this site for the collective knowledge, maintenance tips, and trip reports. Ciao.
