Name: Christian
Age: 59
Home: Windermere, stormy, sweaty, Florida
Current bike: 2017 Versys 1000
Previous bikes: 72 Honda 90, 74 Honda 350-4, 75 Honda 750, 80 Goldwing 1100, 06 BMW F650GS, 12 Suzuki V-Strom 1000, 12 R1200RT

Just bought my Versys in Tulsa and drove it 1610 miles back to Orlando.  Went through the Tail of the Dragon on the way home.  Love the bike, but looking to upgrade the seat, replace the sprockets, and maybe the exhaust.  Looking to see what others have done for good suggestions to improve an already great bike.

 :185:   I'm a big fan of Terry Adcock for an upgraded seat.....https://www.terryscustomseats.com
I had one on my Versys 650 and now have one on my V-1000. I had him make a flat seat to get rid of the pillion hump so i could sit back to stretch out my old knees... Cost of the seat was $330.00
