Hi everyone,
New member from Cornwall, first bike was a Bandit 650 and then 4 years ago I went shopping for a more adventure/tourer style bike so I test rode a Versys 650 and loved it so I bought a Versys 1k GT 😂 Havenít modified it much since (grip puppies, fuel exhaust, wider footrest) the main thing I have done is getting it remapped at Hilltop to fix the bad throttle response.
Good news is I have a fully equipped SE on order which Iím hoping to pick up next thursday 🙂
Cheers everyone and have a virtual pint of Tribute on me.

Thats what happens Adam, you buy one and then have to go and do it again   :008: 

Welcome along to this excellent forum where you will enjoy lots of helpful advice should you need it, there's also some good banter too

Nice one Adam,I'm sure you will enjoy the new bike. :biker1: :biker1: 

It will feel a lot like the old one but it has a much thicker user manual  :lostit: :lostit:  :008:

Maybe my helmet, height, seating position I donít know but on my test ride I actually found the screen on the versys SE slightly better for me than the Puig 🤔
