Hello everyone, I bought a new leftover 2012 versys 650 in August and have just under 2000 miles on it. To this point, I am really impressed with the bike. I like the seating position, and I feel the handling is excellent. The bike feels rugged too. I have added handguards, givi crashbars and a powerbronze rear hugger. Awesome to have a bike that has plenty of accessories available. I have been reading on the forum for a while, and I figure I should become a member and not just a snooper. I can not wait for riding season up here to start but looking out at 3+ feet of snow doesn't help.
