Ive been riding on and off for about 10 years now. Mostly cruisers (I was afraid of what I might do if I got something I could get the front wheel off the ground on). I feel like I MIGHT have finally matured enough so I went out a couple of weekends ago and bought a "Supergreen" 2009 Versys.

So far I am in love. Really fun on the twisty roads here on the Northern California/Southern Oregon coastline. I've put almost 500 miles on it since I picked it up on the 4th of July weekend. It's my daily commuter and attitude adjustment tool.

Only complaint I have is that there's an annoying rattle/buzz from the front fairing at about 4K RPM. It's really loud from the riding position with my helmet on. Not sure if it's a normal sound or not as I have yet to see anyone else on a Versys in my area.

Having a blast none the less so far!

OK, I'm going to do some searching now - found the forum looking for something to keep my hands from getting so cold on the morning ride in - it's usually foggy and in the low 50's and my hands get pretty cold at highway speeds. I see that some of you have added hand guards... Very sweet!

Welcome on board!

Handguards are great when it's chilly, they also keep that stray stone from making you shake your hand and cuss. I put some KTM's on and like them a lot. No bling, but inexpensive and fit like they were made for the bike.('09 green here, too)

Where are you in Oregon? Spent some time in Portland a while back, nice place, but kind of wet.
