I read a long term evaluation of the 08 Versys a while back. They raved about the bike but one issues confounded me. Instead of upgrading the suspension they took it to a suspension specialist . They reduced preload to the min setting and backed off all the damping. They claimed this made a big improvement. They did not provide a rider weight but the testers shown riding the bike I would guess are in the 160-170lb range. Are these guys screwed up or is there some truth in what they are saying?
