Hi everyone, I just purchased an '09 leftover on April 3rd. I went with a green one, of course. I've got about 450 miles on her so far and I love it. The infamous dash noise I've read about on here started for me at about the 400 mile mark, but other than that I have no complaints and it sounds like a fairly simple fix. This is only my second year riding the highways, however I've been riding dirt bikes since I was 10 and I still do now at 36. It just gets a little tougher to pick myself up out of the dirt every year but I do still enjoy it. I spent last summer riding around on an '05 Suzuki DRZ400SM, very fun bike, just wasn't comfortable enough for the longer rides that I wanted to go on with my friends, so I decided to upgrade. Initially I was looking into getting a V-Strom but availability seems to be an issue with them right now. When I walked into the dealership, they had three '09 Versys' there which I had seen before but I guess I forgot about them until I saw them again that day. The price was right, and a week later it was mine.
