After waiting 3 days for the pickup then 6 days for the cross-country truck, it arrived today!!! I did three rides today, each a bit longer and with a bit stronger accelerations, and each followed by a cool down. I believe the stuff about seating the rings and going through the heat cycles. My very first Versys impressions? Good power, good height, pretty good mirrors, really good maneuverability (which is where I think we've got the V-Strom beat), gotta fix that seat, bit of engine heat, fairly stiff ride (I'll check the presets), and a bit of helmet buffeting above 60 mph. I have the feeling that after I mount the giant Givi topbox I'm going to have some difficulty swinging a leg over. First additions after the Givi? Probably a headlight modulator then some PIAA lights for the mountains. Thanks for all the information.
