Hi , the names Chris , live in the lake District and I've just put a deposit down on a 2009 650 . Down sizing from a varadero 1000 now I am getting on a bit , looking forward to finding out about the bike and tinkering .
I'm sure I will be asking loads of questions so go easy .

Welcome to the forum Chris.  You are one very lucky boy.  A motorcyclist who has the good fortune to live in motorcycling paradise.

Enjoy the new bike. They are a cracking bit of kit.

Cheers  Geoff.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You will find the Versys will do everything you need and more. Please put some photos up of your bike - a classic Mk1-  when you get it.
