Those are great deals. Very nice color combo on the Versys. I test rode a Versys and loved it. Have not ridden the FZ8 but have heard good things about it also.

This is very impressive but I am not surprised. My Agility 125 was flawless over 5 years of daily use and virtually zero maintenance. Zero problems, zero issues. They are pretty much bulletproof.

I have a T-Max. Love it. Tremendous handling, very sporty feel. And comfortable. It is much easier to push around the garage than a Burgman 650.
