I'm having a little trouble with stop lights on hills but I just need to get used to it.

I've always hated those intersections and have found that keeping my foot on the brake, while in first gear, bringing the revs up to 2,000 and letting the clutch out slowly usually works fine.

I use the Ring RTC2000.

It's rechargeable & has never let me down. Might help someone as you don't need to plug in to the bike.  :002:

Hey Chuck,

I'm up in Old Thornton about 84th and I-25.  I'm already looking into my first trip up in the mountains. Thinking Estes Park to Grand lake and back.  I want to get a little more used to it though, it's a bit different than the FZ-07 I've been riding.

I got it up in Longmont at Elite Powersports.  I'd been looking for a new bike for a while and finally decided on a Concoure but they are don't seem to exist in the USA anywhere.  Then I was looking at the FJR1300 but ran into the same problem.  Then I noticed this one and there were 2 available.  :)   So far I think I made the right choice.  Just got back from a 50-mile ride around town and I'm loving it.  I'm having a little trouble with stop lights on hills but I just need to get used to it.

Welcome Adeian, I am here in southeast Aurora. You will find that your V1K Gen 3 will do wonderful in the tight twisties in the foothills and also on the long straights out east. What part of Denver are you in and what dealer did you purchase your bike from?

Recommendation of another make of bike on any forum is a potentially hazardous thing to do  :5:   :4: 

At the risk of stating the obvious I suggest you try a GS, they aren't everyones idea of motorcycling nirvana, and you may not like it.

Like I said I really am  so chuffed that I have owned and enjoyed one, to me it's the dogs bollocks of a bike, I'll miss it when its gone    :006:

Versys 1000 - General Chat / Re: Weight limit for top case

I have the same version of Versys as you but my box is the v47 with a different weight limit. Go with what Givi recommend after fitting the Givi plate. Don't forget you need the Givi plate to mount the box anyway.

Link explains the weight limit

Versys 1000 - General Chat / Re: Weight limit for top case

In danger of starting another major discussion on this I have a question.
I have a basic V1K (2022) and it came with a basic rack and a sticker that said no more than 6 kg.  I bought the Kawasaki mount for Givi topbox and fitted it with the new screws that were provided.  I also bought a Givi Trekker 46L topbox.  When I weighed the topbox it is 6kg on its own.

So my questions are
1. does the 6 kg limit only apply to the basic rack?
2. If you bought a V1K with the Givi rack already fitted does it have a different sticker and different weight limit?

Thanks I'm on my third Versys having owned the MK1, MK2 and currently have a MK3 SE GT. Whilst I'm very happy with the Versys I have always hankered after a GS but the price has always put me off. Your reply may make my decision easier if I ever decide to abandon ship lol.
