    Left Greenville on Friday and headed to the Tennessee mountains to pick up my new Versys. Didn't arrive until about 10:30 on Friday night.:eek1

    Phil was an extremely gracious seller and host.

    The Versys was extremely clean and looks brand new,:lol3

    Got strapped in and headed a few miles down the road to a hotel.

    from someone who knows.

    I used my Zuma as a trade-in for my lovely new KLR, and it was one of the dumbest things I've ever done. I miss it CONSTANTLY! Don't let go of your Zuma. If you do, your family will eventually find you curled up in a little ball out in the garage, whimpering and crying, in what used to be the Zuma's parking space (not that I would have personal experience of that mind you :cry)

    Keep the Zuma! Keep the Faith! You won't regret it. :beer

    Edit: P.S. that Versys looks :tb

    I didn't realize that you sold your Zuma. I remember your posts about your Zuma. So you think that I should keep it?

    It has been raining most of the weekend so I have not gotten the Zuma out.:1drink

    Just not sure what I am going to do yet.

    Keep the Zuma. I just bought a new 2012 model, and got rid of a crotch rocket at the same time. I am 53 with some medical issues, and am giving up on large tall motorcycles. I have had a number of 650 dual sports, now I can't even get on one. My current dual sport is a Yamaha XT225. I have a 1500 Goldwing, which I am looking to replace with a large scooter. I still have my Vulcan 750 cruiser, and will keep it forever. It's heavy for a 750, but with a very low seat, and a low COG. I can flat foot it easily. I have crossed the country on it many times.

    I now have a Zuma 125, a Vino 125, and a Stella 150cc 2 stroke. I intend to wear the 2 Yamahas out, the Stella can be rebuilt forever.

    I have had the Versys for 2 weeks now. The Zuma has only been ridden for about 1 mile.:cry

    That is not really a bad sign for the Zuma. It really just means that I need to clean and organize the garage.:eek1

    In the garage's current state of disorder, I can only get one bike out easily and the Versys is closer to the exit right now. If I get it cleaned up, I will be able to get them both out quickly and then the mileage will even out more.:wink:
