I don't have a Versys yet but looking to get one soon. I use to ride a V-Strom...I started with the DL650 then moved up to the DL1000. I loved both of them and had to sell the DL1000 after my divorce 3 years ago. I am currently riding a VFR800 which is pretty fast and fun but really miss the riding position of the V-Strom. Thanks for all the info I've gotten in a few short days!
