I got my 2016 Versys a couple of weeks back. I'm loving it. I took a long break from riding but I have about 10 year of riding experience in underpowered bikes in the subcontinent. I'm a short rider like 5' 7" people were trying to discourage me from getting this bike but I'm really comfortable with it. I do have to make sure I shift around to do a full flat foot on one side and breaks on the other. I'm glad I didn't listen to them. I was think about getting a lower seat if I start to feel uncomfortable. I have a lowering kit but plan not to use it. Any other tips from other vertically challenged riders ?
