Just got a 2009 Versys. After just putting around town, I can tell it sure can profit from a gearing change before I hit any highways. I've got a 16T front I'll put on when I get the ambition. Probably won't do much else to it. It sure could use an aftermarket seat, but at about 4 bills for a Sargent or Corbin, probably won't happen. It'll probably sit 4th in line in bike choice, as my dirt bikes and RC51 have priority.
