That would be me. I've had two go through my hands over the years and I've been lusting after a T100 lately. I love the way these things look.

This surprises me. I'm 6-1 with a 34" inseam. I always considered the Versys a relaxed and comfortable ride. I did lower the pegs to make it even better.

I have the added problem of mild arthritis in my knees so a relaxed riding position is a must.

Next on my list is a Versys 1000. A way different look but it should be a comfortable ride.

I finally looked at a CB1100 last week. Nice bike but I was surprised by how small it seemed. I'm 6-1, 190 with a 34" inseam and it wasn't going to work. It's off my short list.

Every couple of days I do a Google search to see if anything new is out there on the Versys 1000. Nothing so far..
