Spending Some Time with the Versys

It's been extremely hot down here lately, and to be honest, I'd rather take the truck than ride when it's 110 degrees. But this afternoon, I took the Versys on a little jaunt around some back roads in my county.

My first stop was a little bridge over a little creek in the shade.



Just around the corner is Follendor's Dairy Farm.



These farm roads are so quiet and relaxing. I enjoy stopping and just listening to the sounds of the country, but when it's still 93 degrees at 8:30 P.M., it's not so relaxing.







This is the last stretch of county road before it stops at highway 129. The same 129 as the infamous Deal's Gap, though it has a different personality here.



The sun finally sank below the horizon in the west as the full moon rose over the trees in the east.





Back to the grind in the morning, but it was nice to get out and clear my head this evening, and I really liking the Versys so far.

Chad,

I'm going to have to get down your way one of these days and do me some riding on them back roads you have in the area. That's the best color on the Versys for sure. I've thought about trying one out, what do you think about it?

I'd love to hear more about your impressions of the Versys. I'm considering one. When did you get yours?

I like that shot with the moon/sun in the background. Gives some perspective.

See you are another satisfied Versys customer

Nice bike and pictures. The lines of the bike look so clean compared with mine with my side cases and such. And that green color is great.
