Hi, Im Bill a longtime motorcycle rider. Im a multi-bike owner and fell for the Versys when it was introduced in Europe last year. I picked up my own 08 here last week. In fact a week ago today. Ive got a little over 300 miles on her, my son and I put on just a little under 200 last Sunday. He was riding his Ninja 250. I enjoyed the ride although it was a little windy, seat got to after about a 100 miles. Looking forwrad to doing a little personalization and putting many more miles on.
