Welcome Nick. Bummer about the crash, but you should find the Versys to be much more fun that the VStar.

I drove the Versys home from the dealership a week or so ago when it was above 30F and dry and man was it fun! The Vstar was a good starter bike but I needed more power for highways runs to my cabin in Park Rapids which is a 200mile four hour drive away! I love the ergonomics of the Versys and I didn't like the forward controls on the Vstar that much. The Vstar was totaled(55mph t-bone), the fork and hub took a lot of the beating as well as my left foot ripping off the left peg and shift lever! The tank was all dented by my legs as well as the bars and windshield.

Here's the Versys and the Vstar:

Welcome!

That is an ugly way to get off of a motorcycle. I stick to the dirt, way fewer cars that way.

Ouch - sorry to hear about your off. The Versys is a much better bike. You'll have a lot more fun on that.
