BikerPhil Introduction
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:24:11 PM »
Hello,
Picked up my Versys 1000 tourer today after dropping off my Yamah FJR1300 as part ex. Rode it 100 miles home from the dealer and  I am  fantastically impressed. It is light, and soo flexible. I thought the FJR was great at pulling away in top gear, but it's nothing compared to the Versys.
 I have owned Hondas, Suzukis, Triumphs and even a Batavus super moped (one for our younger readers) and currently have a Moto Guzzi Stelvio1200 4v and a Yamaha MT 07.
I am really looking forward to living with my Versys and 'virtually' meeting you all.

Thank you Francis.  The cold, rain and ice season is a good time to buy from a motorcycle dealer. I ride all year so I am very careful.

 :185: Phil, you have a great selection of bikes there, you can never have too many in my book. I've only had mine a couple of months but agree on its flexibility and Versy-tility :001:

Three at the moment. Thinking about a 'project' bike, but all the ones from my youth are stupidly expensive. You know,  Yamaha Rd 250,  Suzukis GTs  and Honda CDs. Even a knackered one is nearly £1000. I do love Italian styling though and the Versys is getting close.
