Looks like i'll be a Versys man. Meet up with the aforementioned seller and negotiated a fair price considering the road rash on the bike. I really liked the feel of it. For me the VStrom seemed...

That's pretty much what I was thinking when I examined the pattern of scratches on it from the pic. Maybe a slow speed maneuver in the driveway. I could see breaking a mirror unloading it but not...

Found a '08 Versys under 400 miles (that's four hundred) for $4100 bucks. Nice and shiny, not a scratch on it.

But it would drive my cost for the bike up considerably if I have to add in that much for fuel to trailer it back. I'd probably still be under 4k though. hmmmm...

I can't flat-foot a WeeStrom.....

Any easy mods to lower it about 1"? I'm real close but even dropping an inch I'd have to hop on while it's on the kickstand every time. I can't just throw my leg over like my cruiser. :(

10 second rule

I think if it goes down and back up within 10 seconds then it never really happened. Kind of like the 3 second rule for food hitting the floor.
