    I just brought home a Versys last Wednesday.

    The bike is an absolute ball to ride. It handles so well it's almost intuitive.

    I'm looking forward to getting enough miles on it to really wring it out. The motor just feels like there is so much potential there. The shifter works so silky smooth and the clutch and it are so compatible. It's a rider's ride and just responds so well to rider input. I'm really liking it.

    Yep, us Versys riders do take pictures . . . . .

    +1 on the VS, Only had it a week, but lovin it. It is exactly what I was hoping for in a bike. Comfortable, Quiet, plenty of range and very inexpensive to maintain.
