My name is Steve and I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I'm recovering from a nasty crash I had on my KTM 950 Adventure back in 08. I broke five vertebrae so it's been a long recovery. I'm going in on the 16th of Dec. to have the rods and screws removed. I'm hoping that this will get me back on the road full time. A friend of mine came to visit me shortly after I got out of the Hospital. He was riding a 2008 Versys. He loved the bike but it really didn't fit him well. He told me he was going to sell it and get a Weestrom, so I bought the bike from him based on magazine feedback, and the fact I fell in love with the looks of the bike. I thought it would be OK for short rides untill I was ready to get back on a liter bike. I've taken a few 100 mile trips and one 250 mile trip and I have to say I going to stay with what I,ve got. I managed a Honda/KTM dealership before my accident, so I was pretty brand loyal, but the Versys is just too cool. Now I'm looking at bags and handguards so I can take the long rides this spring.
