I'm a new member to this forum because, I've done research about the versys 300 after coming across it while I was looking into klr650. I love the klr, but due to it's seat ht. And weight, I needed a light weight klr that I can handle in my 60s, so I found the versys and after doing my research, and it sounds like a good choice. I'll be retiring this year, so I plan on touring around North America for a full year by myself and I need a light weight adv. Cycle and this seems like the perfect fit for me.
