Left Greenville on Friday and headed to the Tennessee mountains to pick up my new Versys. Didn't arrive until about 10:30 on Friday night.

Phil was an extremely gracious seller and host.

The Versys was extremely clean and looks brand new,

Got strapped in and headed a few miles down the road to a hotel.

A word of advice...

from someone who knows.

I used my Zuma as a trade-in for my lovely new KLR, and it was one of the dumbest things I've ever done. I miss it CONSTANTLY! Don't let go of your Zuma. If you do, your family will eventually find you curled up in a little ball out in the garage, whimpering and crying, in what used to be the Zuma's parking space (not that I would have personal experience of that mind you )

Keep the Zuma! Keep the Faith! You won't regret it.

Edit: P.S. that Versys looks

I didn't realize that you sold your Zuma. I remember your posts about your Zuma. So you think that I should keep it?

It has been raining most of the weekend so I have not gotten the Zuma out.

Just not sure what I am going to do yet.

That is awesome. We have a Cocker Spaniel pup. I wonder if he would ride?

I'm not sure this dog would agree.

Keep the Zuma. I just bought a new 2012 model, and got rid of a crotch rocket at the same time. I am 53 with some medical issues, and am giving up on large tall motorcycles. I have had a number of 650 dual sports, now I can't even get on one. My current dual sport is a Yamaha XT225. I have a 1500 Goldwing, which I am looking to replace with a large scooter. I still have my Vulcan 750 cruiser, and will keep it forever. It's heavy for a 750, but with a very low seat, and a low COG. I can flat foot it easily. I have crossed the country on it many times.

I now have a Zuma 125, a Vino 125, and a Stella 150cc 2 stroke. I intend to wear the 2 Yamahas out, the Stella can be rebuilt forever.
