I've had my V for a year now and have put 9K on her, and I love it to death. Have taken several 400 mile rides to the Bay Area and it has always done well. Yesterday did something new with her. My daughter was performing in Anaheim so I went down to cheer her one. Left the house at 9:30AM. 523 miles later, pulled back home into my driveway. Bike was awesome as always, but dang, that was a little long on the Versys. Great power and suspension for the ride, but would have loved the comfort of a 'Wing. Some day. Some day!
