Ok let me start by saying that I do not own a versys yet but may by next weekend. I am a new rider and went to the dealer and sat on one. When standing up both feet are flat on the ground with me standing straight up. There is no spread between my legs. Is this ok or will it be a problem when stopping? Another thing I would like to talk about is shifting. The pegs seem as if they are further back. It could be that its just me being new. Please understand that the only thing I have ridden is the Buell Blast in the Safety course. That bike was way to small for me but I could sit further back in the seat which put the shifting a little in front of me. My issue is that it seemed hard for me to slip my shoe in between the peg and the shifter. What can I do about this if I buy the bike? Thanks for your help. If I can resolve these issues this bike will be in my driveway next weekend.
