Hello,

A few days ago I got a Green Versys. I have not been on a bike in 20 years. So far it is a blast. I almost got a Vulcan 900, but I don't like the riding position of the cruzers and my back is too old for a crotch rocket.

I need to take the intermediate riding course just to remember everything I forgot!

As much as I don't like full face helmets, my wife "talked" me into it.


What's up with the Harley crowd these days? Do they still hate Japanese bikes?
I can't tell a Harley from any other V-Twin unless I see the badging.

Congrats and Welcome

Congratulations on getting your new green ride. Those green V's are the sharpest color, in my humble opinion. I've got a red '08, but I was just at the local dealership today, lusting after a green model.

We all might be a tad biased on this site, but I really think you will enjoy your Versys. It is a bike that grows on you with each ride. After many rides, you'll come to a deeper appreciation of what a good machine these bikes really are. Welcome to the site.

I just went thru a traffic circle (a.k.a Roundabout) for the first time ever. They can be a pain in car. It was real tricky holding the proper radius of the turn.

4000 RPMs ... I need to get to 600 miles quickly! My left hand is getting tired of all that shifting.
