My son and I went on a trip last June/July
Me on a 2008 Versys



He on a 2002 Honda VTX 1800



We went west and north from Wisconsin
3 weeks, 7100 miles
Our turn around point was Hyder, Alaska
I sold the Versys when I got home
It had 28,000 miles on it in two and a half years
I don't have the time for a full blown trip report
Here are some pics
The V was a great bike
I punished it and it held up very well

Trip was 21 nights. 10 nights in a motel, 11 in a tent.

Son Josh said his highlight was the Kootenay Rockies in B.C. Those roads are the best in this hemisphere.

My highlight was watching son Josh transform from a biker to a rider. There is a big difference.

We iron butted it home 1400 miles in 26 hours slab all the way.

Ride safe everyone but ride hard. This is a good forum everyone seems so civil. A few know it alls but every forum has those,,,,

Great looking bike and fantastic pictures! Looks like you and your son had a great time. What set up are you using to mount a top rack with the factory side racks?
