Well a few months ago (About 3) I had decided is time to get a bike, always like them, always wanted one, so lets go get the bike...and the question came up, which one? My dream bike...suzuki v strom or kawa versys? So after many hours researching and looking stuff online, the v strom seen the right one..plus I found a really good deal for one with all accesories included (crash bars, givi racks and luggage, handguards, center stand, additional LED stop light). Well 3 months have past by, what do I think of my vstrom?..well as a new rider... I think is a really good bike, really easy to handle, and to learn on, the protection while riding is really good...overall a great bike....so why am I doubting my decision now? Well the answer is easy....I dont need such a big bike! The vstrom is huge! is 490 lbs! is way too heavy... I bought it to go on rides with my wife, to go touring...well so far...I only done this once...so that reason get thrown out, to do dual riding? well with a 490 lbs bike ...no thanks! I just feel the bike is too heavy and big (overall size)...so I started looking at the versys again...the only problem is that a have the vstrom loan to pay off first...., well just wanted to share my thoughts... oh and by the way is there any versys riders in Gainesville, Fl? would love to meet up... do you guys think im crazy? that after 3 months I want to change my bike?
