Versys is a great first big bike, it's a great bike all together.

Enjoy and many safe, happy miles.

Don't forget to upload some pictures of your new steed!  :37:

 :185: to the forum B B.   There is lots to like about the Versys.

And they provide all that most of us really need. Comfy, frugal, cheap to run, and plenty fast enough for most sane folk.

Good luck with your search for yours.

 Cheers  :031:  Geoff.  :002:

Welcome to the forum, loads of good stuff and helpful folk in here.
The Versys is a cracking and confidence inspiring companion, and has been my best bike yet.
Theyre so good many of the lifers here just seem to trade them in for the newer model or the Versys 1000.

Think JD may take issue with you Stewie about wondrful Irishmen and its debatable what side of which border the tent is in and what foorms may be needed to get it out :008: :008: :008:
