I've been riding dirt bikes for 30 years. So finally after riding friend's bikes around town(mostly dual sports as they are dirt riders too) I went off the reservation and picked up a green '09 Versys yesterday with only 1300 miles on the clock. All smooth tires and more than one cylinder!
All 30 miles on it so far have been a blast though. I think I can resist putting knobbies on it.

Welcome to the V family from Alaska:thumb:
GO AHEAD and dual sport it:goodidea: It's been done by quite a few of us. It's the best of both worlds. I too came off a 1988 XR600 "thumper" I miss it every once and a while. But now instead of having "A dirt bike with road manners" I have "A roadbike with dirt manners" :usa:

Thanks guys!
I'm enjoying/learning all about it for now, but down the road when it needs tires, I might have a tough decision to make. I saw amongst some google images a fella had what looked like a proper 19" front wheel and everything on the V. I was drooling.
Hard to imagine wanting to change it that much though.

The V will go pretty much ANYWHERE, even on its 17" wheels - w/ appropriate rubber.

Check out jdrocks in "Members Rides".
