I purchaced my 2009 Versys back in the spring of 2009 and have ridden it all over Canada and the USA. I have no intention of selling it but I just bought a 2004 Harley FXDL Dyna Low Rider. Having only had a short 25 mile ride since purchase I can comfortably say that the Versys is twice the bike in almost every way. I can also say that the Harley, despite the poor brakes, handling and performance is still the sexiest machine I've ever owned. Now with three bikes, Versys, Harley and a Honda CRF250 X in my garage, I will have the opportunity to really compare the brands and models over the next few years.
