Hi, everyone been around for awhile but haven't introduced myself. I am on my 2nd Versys. My first one was a red 2009 and I really wanted a blue one and after having the red one for about a yr. I lucked up and found a blue 2010 on Craigslist that someone had bought and had just paid the loan off on it and it only had 300 miles on it. Got it for a steal!!. Took all the farkles off the red one and put on the blue one and had them painted and now I have my blue bike. Looks like they were bought for the blue bike.
Really enjoy the Versys but had to lower it as much as I could to be able to ride it and get the lower seat too. Now I just need somewhere to ride to and some good riding buddies. Been riding for close to 40 yrs and love it but have got sense enough now to slow down and take it easy. No longer have a need for speed, enjoy taking time to enjoy the sights. If you are in the Raleigh, NC area and want to hook up some time for some riding let me know and I would love to meet some new riding buddies.
Grandma says to ride safe.:yeahsmile:

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Peppino I would love to meet up with you some weekend and ride some if you are up for a new riding buddy. I love to ride up toward Clarksvill Va and out in the country away from any traffic and crazy drivers but can ride in traffic in town OK.

Hope things can work out so you and some of your riding buddies will let me tag along so I can have some ride time. Maybe I can show you some new roads.

Funny thing Lee I am in Blowing Rock this week working a horse BUT there is no bike with me because I don't have time to ride while I am working. And then I will be in Asheville the end of Jully for two weeks working horse shows ago but again I will not have time to ride. It is bad to be in the beautiful mountains and not be able to ride.

And goat12 yes a am a 58yr old grandmother of 3. That is the reason that I am look for some riding buddies. I just don't feel that it is really safe for me to be riding by myself. Around town is one thing but for any distance is another. I use to have a riding partner but after 38 yrs. he decided he would take a different road. But life does on.

So anyone that is in the Raleigh are that is willing to let me tag along on rides I sure would appreciate it. I just want to ride and need to find some folks to ride with. Thanks.:thanx:

Hope everyone has a great weekend riding!! I am working in Blowing Rock at a Horse Show and will not get to ride any this weekend. In the beautiful NC mountains and can't ride what a bummer!!. One of these weekends I hope to get a chance to slow down some and ride if I can find someone that will let me tag along with them.

Hi Grandma, and welcome! I am down near Fayetteville but would love to link up and ride sometime. I have only been riding a few years and definitely take the "safe" approach as you seem to. I also have a blue '09 versys, lol. If you ever want to meet up somewhere in between and head out for an afternoon, I'm your riding partner! Have fun and ride safe!
