    Cam & Lori's 2017 Kawasaki Versys-X

    Rode this home today.

    It is "used" but it only had 22 miles on it when I left the dealership. The previous owner basically took it home, then decided he wanted something else. Did not go farther than our insurance provider's office. It sure is comfy, with a good riding position. I feel relaxed on it. I'll write more later once I've spent more time on it.

    Very cool!

    If it's not a billion degrees you should ride out to Kershaw and come visit Tyler and I on Memorial Day.

    Hopefully, it will be a more comfortable 90F this time instead of 100+.

    Good allrounder - can commute, can tour, can have fun in the bends.
    Enjoy your return to riding!

    Lori and I have decided to name it Carbon, for multiple reasons I won't bother trying to explain here.

    I rode it around town today. I like it. Riding position is upright and comfortable. It still needs to be broken in, as it only has 50 miles on it now. The manual says don't go over 4K rpm for the first 400 miles, but 4K in 6th gear is a mere 35 mph. Two-wheel riding puts a smile on my face.

    There is a rattle, which seems odd considering the bike is practically brand-new. It literally sounds like a nail in a can. I think I may take it back to the dealer for them to have a look. I discovered that it has an aftermarket horn that the previous owner installed. I may eventually just remove it, as SC does not have vehicle inspections.

    Looks cool mang. Here's to many happy, dusty, wet, bogged, uncomfortable, stressful, adventurous miles on it

    Watching Lori take her first ride on her motorbike was all kinds of hawt.
