Edit: I said I would not feed the troll.

MY Versys meets federal and Kalifornia exhaust emissions with out an O2 sensor.
California model needs a charcoal canister (coffee can) .
650 cc 65 horse power. Good suspension. Look at my sig, Its not my only bike.

Ride your tiger right outa here.

Yeah I love my V, its got a soul.
You to me are a troll.

My versys is the most fun bike I have owned. With the hyperpro suspension upgrades, laced wheelset and armor, it becomes a pretty bad ass adventure bike for fire roads etc.

eBay shorty levers

New Versys owner checking in. Previous owner dropped on each side so the levers were trashed. Picked up some shorties on eBay for cheap. They work great:

Thanks...
Mine came used with Happy Trails bags. Well made. Definitely impressed with them so far.

Good year

So I posted in this thread before but now an update. I bought the bike January 23rd of last year, and now have just under 23k miles. I use it as a daily vehicle (I don't own a car now). It has been my therapy, my mistress (I can thrash it all I want and it keeps begging for more), and my travel guide (It seems to always point me in a direction and keep going).

I don't treat it like a queen. I drop it, I put oil in, I adjust the chain (when it gets really bad... my mistake), and with my BT-023 rear tire I can go ~9k miles before replacing needing a new one... granted I have been looking at some dual sport tires that work better off road

All I have really done to the bike is mount the control knobs for my heated gear, and when I was on a road trip last year I visited my sister in Star, ID (Boise area) and bought some Happy Trail side cases which have been amazing (aka: you can drop the bike on them and they keep going.)

Here are some pictures of my travels:








Here is to the next 23k miles.

New Paint

I decided that if I couldn't do any mods to the bike I would just go for New Paint.



So I went from THIS ->



To THIS ->
