Hello, to everyone, I just got my new 08 on 4-16-09 and it seems like a great bike. Only have a few hundred miles on it, but cant wait for the break in period to be over so I can really enjoy the bike. I have had bigger, faster bikes, but the fun factor on this bike is awesome. Always liked dual purpose bikes, but the Versys has made riding fun again, Im hooked already, plan to ride this bike as much as possible! This site is awesome!
