Hello Everyone - New Guy from New Jersey, USA
on: July 02, 2021, 07:34:23 PM
Hello everyone. I am happy to say that I am a proud new owner of a Versys 1000 LT (2018 with 1,500 Miles). Picked this used one from Indiana over last weekend and towed it back to Jersey and also rode it along the way. Love the smoothness,acceleration and everything about the bike so far.

My other Bike is a Yamaha MT09. I wanted something for long distance touring and Versys is perfect.

Planning a 7 day trip to Blue Ridge Parkway in August and need to get the bike ready for that trip.

These are the upgrades I am currently working on.....
- GIVI 47 Liter Top Case with Philsfarkels Rack
- Yoshimura Fender Eliminator
- Sargent Revolution Seat
- DC Power Outlet
- SW Motech Crash Cage
- SW Motech Under body Skid
- Kawasaki OEM Radiator Guard

Future Mods (If I am not broke already  :003:)
- Highway foot pegs
- Fog Lights
- Heated Grips

Hey Sunny, pleased to make your acquaintance! I'm new here too, don't have my Versys yet, actually, but I'm just one town away from you over in Morristown - what are the odds?! Maybe we meet up for a ride sometime.

I don't have a purchase lined up just yet, actually. I went to look at one this week, but it was sort of a train wreck (lots of cracked fairings and poorly maintained), I need to keep looking for one  :006: . My budget is low so I'll probably wind up with a 2015 or a 2016. Currently riding a 2006 Suzuki V-Strom.
