I am seriously considering a new Versys 1000. I currently own two bikes, 2008 Honda Goldwing and a 1998 Kawasaki Concours. I bought the wing after renting one on a vacation with the wife. She said she would ride more if we had one. She doesn't and it sits most of the time. I still prefer my Connie. Two major trips this year, Canada and North Carolina-Tennessee. I found this site to find out the pros and cons of the Versys. Thanks for letting me join in.
