Right on that's a glowing review I will try it next time. TG is nothing amazing just decent quality food at a good price. Burgers are awful everything else is typical greasy diner quality

I don't notice any difference in engine noise between it and and my old 05 650 vstrom

the exhaust sound is really quiet though a bit deeper sounding. The sound when downshifting is fantastic :)

Interesting, I'll have to mess around with it tonight. It does import the maps a lot better then co-pilot so it might be worth the hassle to at least use it for the gpx files for group rides.

You should look into the CB500X great bike, a bit slower, a bit smaller then the Versys but with a similar riding position. It's also cheaper but still has ABS brakes.
