Brand new owner of a 2015 Versys in the Upstate of SC. I've been riding a cruiser for years, but wanted something sportier. Researched bikes for quite a while before pulling the trigger on the V (got the white one). I believe I will really enjoy riding this bike!

Hello and welcome. I too was a cruiser guy. I was getting really bored with riding. I was trading in bikes every couple of years or so, but nothing was giving me that smile we all get when it's right. The only time I was really smiling is when I rode my wife's bike, which has the 500 Ninja engine and tranny. I would get off it grinning ear to ear. It reminded me of why I started riding a bike in the first place.

Sport bikes are nice, but I can't do the bent over position all day. The sport touring/adventure bikes began to catch my eye the last couple of years. At such a great price point, I got my V, couldn't resist. No regrets, loving every minute and always looking for an excuse to ride, just like when I was a kid.

My two cents.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm already learning a lot about these bikes from you all, just hate I waited so late in the year to buy it. Here in SC I ride all year except for the coldest days, so I should get a good bit of enjoyment from it this winter! I went ahead and got the lowering kit from Motowerks (5' 7" / 29" inseam so I was tip-toeing it when trying it out) along with other mods (heated grips, bags, etc), so I'm still waiting for the dealer to finish putting it all together. Can't wait!
