Re: Motorcyclist - Battle of the Baggers
Sheezz, you guys missed the most important point of the issue...Versys by Kawasaki...Bike of the Year!
When they heard I got one last year, they said, "Well, I guess we know what to name bike of the year in 08...Pete got one!"
Actually, I do have 9k on it by now, and have only been out of town once...to the MOA rally in Gillette. One up, it makes a better tourer than most of those in the mix, and a bunch better in the canyons. 60 hp at 400 lbs, 55 inch wheel base gives it more acceleration than the GS's and RT's of the world and its steady as a rock among trucks. It is truly one fun bike. 7500 recommended between oil changes, screw on common oil filter; have yet to adjust the chain. One of the better commuter bikes going. The Versys is pretty well sold out for 08, but 09 holds a selection of colors and the ABS option available in the USA. Both options have been available for several years in Canada and Europe.
So much for the commercial...its just a bike for the common man who loves to ride motorbikes, and ....
[whisper] its only $7--- out the door!
