Stopped by, and rode with a friend this past weekend. He asked a very simple question which stumped me for a minute. I also currently own a 2007 Honda VTX 1800C, and he wanted my opinion on which bike (the VTX or the Versys) was more comfortable to ride long distance. I had to be honest, and told him that although the seating position on the Versys was somewhat more suitable to making body position adjustments while riding, (lifting a cheek, leaning forward or back) I actually find the mammoth cruiser VTX more comfortable when I'm tooling down the highway. Not saying that I wouldn't take the Versys cross country, because it is certainly quite capable to do anything but, if I was striking out tomorrow to do a thousand miles, I'd probably hop on the VTX. It is just so smooth and effortless. I'd have to say of my past bikes though, the best mile muncher was my 1998 VFR800 Interceptor.
