I am hoping to bring this thread back to life. I am looking at replacing a few bikes I have with one. The ZG1000 being the thing I most want to get rid of. I'm thinking the Versys 1000 should make an excellent replacement for everything, still give me the long distance capabilities I want, plus the versatility I miss from my VStrom.
The 1000 Versys is a bit of a rare bird around here, so not many people I can ask in person. I'm hoping for some input from people who have now had a chance to put some miles on theirs.
If you get far enough away, you'll be on your way home.
Piss off, I'm in my Happy place.
