Hi all.. Not a Kawasaki owner yet, but really liking the Versys 650LT. Just wish I could test ride one before plopping down the money, and I'm most concerned about the seat height (I'm 5'6", 140lbs). I'll be looking for comments on lowering the bike, or at least a lower seat (without gel, as its hot here in Florida). Went 12 years without riding at all (restricted community) and finally bought a Ninja 650. Soon found I hated the riding position (I'm old too) but since I couldn't test ride it before buying....went to a used S40, just the right size for me, but not highway friendly. I DID get to test ride the new Vulcan S (oh, I'm gonna be hated...) but felt the wheelbase was 4 inches too long , and just couldn't connect with it (though it was comfy). So...after another post on the new member site, I'll be joining in. Can't wait!
