My name is Greg. Born and raised Californian. Mostly dirt bikes in the late 60s and early 70s. Wife came along and no more bikes until the year before last.

Started with a blue 08 KLR650. Bike left me stranded twice so after the 3rd recall I step up to the green Versys this last Sat.

Love it so far but can't stand the 4000 RPM breakin for the first 600. I'm on 200+ and can't wait.

Hope to meet up with more Versys in the future.

Actually I bought the much faster green one. LOL

We need to setup a ride, as soon as I get done with this 4000 RPM stuff.

Know anyone else in the area with a V?

Mike,

I think I saw your bike last weekend coming up 9th Street crossing Gaffey. Unfortunately, my V is in NE, but I commute on a '88 Honda HawkGT here. We should get together.

BTW, I believe that the 4000rpm limit is Kawasaki's lawyer-speak. I started mine from 0 miles and rode it like I stole it. Several heat cycles later, it's been returning 60mpg.
