    I didn't get the impression they really lived any of them. Either that or they were really tired from riding up and down that same road for half a day.

    Your Versys sounds nice. Is that the stock pipe?

    Well, it was the 650GS and it was just a street test. The F650GS is more of a DP bike than the Versys, lighter with better suspension and more dirt worthy. The Versys is one of those SUVs for the street. I was surprised by how cheap the F650GS is in England. We're getting hammered by the exchange rate or import costs or something.
