Finally went and done it after looking at KTM's, BMW's, Ducati's, Triumphs, etc. I bought a Versys 1000 2016 model (Titanium) with a trade in of my Versys 650 as part of the deal, the 650 had 31,000 km trouble free while being thrashed to death trying to keep up with mates who have bigger bikes while looking for roads with no speed cameras. Thank you to everyone
on this forum for all their brilliant posts which have been a great deal of help to me when I have had to buy most farcles (there have been many)from overseas. I bought the 650 having been away from bikes for nearly 30 years, thought I would keep it for a year! 3 years on I am sorry to see it go. I don't really mean goodbye to the forum, this is probably the best bike forum on the net! Cheers and ride safe.
