Hi Everyone
« on: Nov 14, 2020, 06:32 PM »
Just joined today.
Purchased my 2016 650GT yesterday.
I had the Gen 1 2007 ABS model 2 years ago and always regretted selling it. Very happy to have a Versys 650 back in the garage. My Gen 1 was Metallic Orange, and my current Versys is................ ORANGE  !!!!
Love that colour
I also have a FJR1300 in the Anniversary Colour Scheme and a Triumph Tiger 1050se in ........Orange....Lol
I usually do 2 weeks touring in Europe every year, except this year for obvious reasons, multiple weekends in Wales and possibly a long weekend in Scotland each year.
Looking forward to the chat and info from everyone here.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Pleanty of info on the Versys here if you need it.
The bike sounds nice except of course for the colour, though it could have been worse - Yellow!  Also it is not a classic Mk1 but a clone.
You appear to have a nice choice of bikes - the others are unlikely to get a look-in once you get into the Versys way of riding.

Hopefully we may meet up next time you come to Wales

Cheers Dave,
Hopefully this covid19 will be under control soon and we can all get back to our normal biking.
We normally stay over in Llandrindod Wells, on our weekends,  maybe you know it, its very central for us coming from Fishguard and returning through Holyhead. God i miss those trips .....
I'll send you a message next time we're invading  :008:

I would have preferred mine to be orange instead of the manky green that it is. I wonder what the inspiration was that made Mr. Kawasaki choose green as his colour, was he down to the last few ones in the Quality Street tin?
I'm sorry, really bad reception here, you said your name was Dr. who?

I know what you mean. The Green and Black colour scheme is great too, but I just prefer the Orange/Black.
Either way a great bike and I'm delighted to have one again 😀

Welcome jonners you have made a great choice
Your address reminds me of the wonderful trips I've had to Ireland especially the first one before you had the Euro it was like England in the fifties
