Keeping the Versys to give to my son. It's an '11 FZ8 with 500 miles on it. Couldn't find a single reason to pull the trigger on the FZ1 or Z1000 other than improved suspension and I'm going to come out pretty far ahead going this route.

So you will get a bump in displacement...I have owned more Yamahas than any other make...Although I've not really had a up to date model in many moons...still i'm not complaining....
I had been planning to head to Bridgeport WV for our annual memorial day Rally but this year i have been sidetracked so i'll be local this weekend...lokkin to tag and hook up with whomever wants to ride...weather will be excellent...at least thats what the weather guessers are sayin...

And go from a parallel twin to an I-4. I like the 650 twin though. I've never owned a Kaw until the last two bikes.
KTMs, Husabergs, Suzukis way back when, Yamahas, one Honda for about a month...

I'm going to *probably* be tied up with various things until Monday, but I'm up for a Monday poaching run if anyone else is.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but is this not it on the US site? Sometimes I have issues getting to the US site for companies over here, but I'm pretty sure this is it. Strangely, it is not on the "naked" tab, but this very much appears to be the US sight.

Depending on how all the chips fall, I may have Saturday and Sunday available for poaching. Just depends on which head I let do the planning and how much the wallet wants to get involved...

A friend just got a brand, spankity new 990 SMT. SERIOUS lust for that bike. Unfortunately, it's a post-Powerball bike for me.
