Hi and welcome to the forum

A 2008 Classic Mk1 Versys - best of the bunch!
Can I suggest that after a 30 year break, you seek some training to update you with modern motorcycling techniques. You would really enjoy your motorcycling more as it increases your confidence immeasurably.

Good afternoon John, and  :185: to the forum.

Enjoy your new bike, and your time here on the forum.

There is lots of help here, if and when needed.

 Like Dave I also think that that a refresher course would be a big help to you, and would safely guide you back into riding.

Cheers  Geoff  :031: .

Welcome from the Cotswolds, and FYI our annual Versys meet is planned for Northern Ireland this September (tbc). Might be a great way to get some miles under your belt, loosen some of them rusty bolts and squeeze in a bit of banter.  :008:

Hopefully, there'll be some guidance from the Ricommittee soon regarding NVM dates and locations!
