my Versys 1000

I am new to this thread and have enjoyed reading through it. I bought my 1000 Versy,s this summer, after getting a deal I could not refuse on a trade. So far I have 5000 kms and am feeling comfortable with the bike. It is easy to ride, but when you want to pick up the pace it will go. It is like owning 2 bikes 1 under 5000rpm and another over 5000rpm I find it very managable on dirt roads even with a 17 inch front. I credit this to it feeling lots lighter than its true weight. I will be putting skid plate on over the winter. My only complaints are that it is much too quiet and I can't hear the bike good enough. This might be fixed with a better windshield, like lots of bikes the Versy's is better with no windshield at all than the one the factory installed. I toured another bike (klr 650) all over the Yukon and British columbia this year and I think touring will be even better on this bike in 2013 ......Steve
