Hi all, I just picked up a 2009 Versys 650 in green and am loving it! I'm based on the boarder of Essex / London and use the bike to commute and have fun!

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Have fun with the Versys. 2009 means it will be a classic Mk1.

Greetings from South London, will have to see if we can arrange a meetup at some point.

Cheers Mark.

I'm in Sarf London as well. I'm not sure if my passport has the necessary visa for North London though.

Meet up sounds good - maybe there is a good place to meet halfway then go from there?

Might have to wait a little while though because having had the bike for only 2 weeks someone knocked it over in a car park yesterday!!!!!!

I don;t know how - its broad daylight - the car park was empty and its a bright green bike!!!!!

Welcome to the forum!

Another Londoner here, I'm on the London/Kent border so just the other side of the crossing from you I think.

Also up for a meet, anyone visited Burnham on crouch? It's in Essex and has a fantastic set of corners leading into town. Probably more of a summer destination but still worth it.

There's always the Bike Shed in Shoreditch for those of us with trendy mustaches and a few quid to burn. Lol

Either way, enjoy your new bike and the forum!

Burnham bends is what your thinking, and yes they are pretty good, I used to camp at the horse & hounds up there and have organised several bike meets around the area so know it well, as the the Bike Shed, I've been once, to be honest I felt like I should have gone home cleaned all my bike kit first, a little to trendy to be for the average biker, more the "harley & got a triumph bobber"  types, and yet it's for deeper pockets than mine.
