Hello from an ex pat in Sweden, picked up my new Versys 9th October, moved over from a Yamaha MT09 Tracer. Completely different characters Tracer a bit more nimble and somewhat "buzzy", the Versys very relaxing in comparison but still able to hustle when the opportunity arises.
Spent a whole 8hrs today stooging around on an awsome autumn day got a numb bum but I think I'm gonna like this bike :)

Hello and welcome Redeye  :031:
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

 :185: to the Forum Redeye. You have made a great choice of bike. If you're anything like me you will get plenty of enjoyment riding it. From your pics it looks like great autumnal riding weather in Sweden at the mo - keep em' coming  :152:

Thanks for the welcome guys, definitely think I made a good choice of bike, ridden every day since I picked her up. Really comfortable with the way she handles, enjoying every minute  :152:

Yes... neutral, easy handling, suspension good when properly adjusted, brakes well up to the normal mission for the bike. And the engine is great, being of reduced compression and tuned for low and midrange to give a flat power band... changes that leave a Ninja liter engine overbuilt and bulletproof and smooth as can be.

Owners on this board have modded everything, with some success. But the basic package as provided is very well balanced and coordinated. You will enjoy months of realizing more and more what a great bike you have. After that, you won't take it for granted. You will appreciate it every time you ride.  :028:
