Hello from Scotland
« on: Jan 20, 2021, 05:51 PM »
Hello all,

New Versys 650 owner here. I just purchased a 2015 650 that gets delivered to me next week. I am currently living in Elgin in Scotland. I have been riding since 2016 and had a very old and battered bandit 600.
 I lived in Cyprus at the time, so it blended in well with all the other scrap vehicles driving around. Not mechanically minded in anyway so I am sure I will be tapping into all the knowledge and advice from these forums. :biker1:

Welcome to the forum from N.Ireland.

What part of Cyprus were you in?
I used to live in Famagusta and worked in Protaras.

I lived just outside Limassol. I was only there for 3 years. Loved the place.

A lovely part of the country.
Been there a few times.
I was a search and recovery diver over there.
