Hmm. I finally get a Zuma 125 and everybody else gets rid of theirs. I plan on putting a few thousand miles on mine this winter.

I tried a Versys, nice bike, but I refuse to give up my Vulcan 750 for one. It is by far the most comfortable long distance bike I've ever owned. 74,000 miles in 10 years, including two SS1000s. And none of that was commuting.

I have no idea what I am going to do with my Zuma.

I am planning on riding it to work tomorrow though.

I did the trick of putting some washers under the screws for the seat bracket in the front. You can replace them with longer screws to get even more elevation but might want to put some foam or something to hold the battery. I ended up sending my seat to Terry Adcox to have him resculpt it and that also helped.

I dig that Versys. I almost got one when I was beween vstroms. If I didn't ride two up so much I think I'd get the Versys instead.

The Versys is a lot of fun. I had a hard time deciding between the Strom and the Versys.

They are both great bikes.
