Happy to join here. I bought new Versys 650 Feb 2018. Done only 7000km so far. It is really good bike, bit high for my height though, I am only 5'9". Unfortunately dropped the bike few times already. All during stopping except one yesterday, slipped on slippery mud on off road. . Dropping while near 0 speed, I learned my mistakes and I am very careful on such situations. My mistake was using front brake for the final stopping.My tire is the stalk tire. What is the best tire tread for off-road. Please some experienced rider help me.

On the bike been tall and you dropping it a few time , better to get a lowering kit from https://motowerk.com/ for your safety taking in consideration the traffic in India.

On off road tire there many ,best get what is available in local market.

PLEASE POST YOUR SECOND POST HERE IN THIS THREAD YOU STARTED- THANKS
Thanks for your advice. I will look for a lowering kit. And definitely change to a better tire at replacement time.

:welcome: aboard!

I suggest you "set your sag". I'm 5'9" and I can flat-foot my V650 once my weight (174" soaking-wet) settles the bike from a BIT HIGH.

(I also have footpeg lowering blocks which help a lot, but NOT the ability to flat-foot.)
