Howdy, all, from NW Arkansas. Getting to know my '08 Versys. I have owned 4 BMWs, Triumph, Honda, Vespas, and HD over the years. Sadly, our great BMW dealer closed, so I went hunting for something different. I'm really impressed with the Versys so far. I will probably upgrade the seat, but no complaints otherwise. Very well mannered machine. This one only had 17k miles and had been sitting for a while, so I am going to flush and bleed all the things. Getting the oil filter off was quite the adventure, too. It has a good service history until it went "out of service" around 2013. Chain is new and tires are good but a bit old. Upgraded brakes with steel lines. I'm still getting it dialed in as far as suspension. I would appreciate any tips for the 1st gens!
