I really like those flesh colored gloves.  Wonder where he got them

He got em from his mama.  :008:

He never wears gloves in his videos, and wears T-shirts unless it's cold, then a jacket. I think that is called NATGMTT "None of the gear most of the time..." :124:

It was just awful, wasn't it? That fellow does a video test ride on each used bike he takes in, touting each of them and understanding none of them past turning the key and riding around the neighborhood.

But yeah, if you know the Versys, that was like seeing it in the hands of a thief who grabs a bike, rides it for a few minutes and ditches it.  :761:

Yes , pretty poor excuse for a road test ... would anyone buy a bike from him or the dealer he represents  :157:

Welcome aboard from a fellow north west rider. There's no protection for the radiator so first thing I fitted was a rad gaurd. I can't recall anyone having their rad holed but prevention is best  😉.
After that the usual upgrades, exhaust etc etc. Anything you need to know, just ask.

Is the radiator guard  for protection from experience :006: or part cosmetic?

Yes will be pulling on a few friends best practice on the chain and searching here too.

Neither... I've never had a punctured or damaged radiator ( I know of  some that have) and that's because I always fit a guard  :028:    ... like Floyd says. prevention is better and cheaper than cure

There are plenty types of guard to choose from I have the Kawasaki variety others may recommend different    :001:

Great choice of bike, defiantly get the tall screen, most important thing you can do to the bike in my honest opinion.
