Nothing to do with bikes, but this just popped into my head.

I am a firm believer in leaving both wheels on the road at all times. Perhaps because I have been in close personal contact with various forms of road making materials. ;)

 

I was trying to see any obvious scar tissue on our heroine’s extremities above. Couldn’t really tell. That girl has talent and probably some form of brain damage :lol: but seeing her wearing shorts and tank tops, though very appealing, I couldn’t help but cringe at the idea of what her pretty little body would look like after a 50+ mph spill…or even less than 50 mph.

New bike at the ranch.

Is that a 300 or a 400?  :D

I think you’re going to love that bike. 
 

I have a 2016 Versys 650. Love that bike. I would like to step up to the 1000LT+ , but I think my wife is hoping I give up on this motorcycle fetish of mine. 
 

 

 

That’s not happening. ;)

It's the Versys 1000 lt +, the 2020 model.  Had it for a week now and enjoying it!

After I looked again I realized I didn’t look close  enough at the engine. Oops. :rolleyes:

 

I really like that bike. I went to the International Motorcycle Show in along Beach in December of 2019. I sat on dozens of bikes, but when I sat on the Versys 1000 LT+ it felt completely familiar and it fit me. It sits just like the 650 only slightly heavier. 
 

I added this set of LED lights to my bike. I set them up as supplemental lighting for the low beam headlight. They really get people’s attention and really help at night.

I think I like your model better. Here is the 2021 model

I was impressed with how it carries the weight.  It is about 100 lbs lighter than the ST 1300 I was on but it doesn't feel even that heavy.  Compared it with the 2021 but not much change except the color.  It was also still new so I got a good discount being last year's model.

I am not sure about the 1000, but I suspect it might be, but my 650 is very top heavy. It’s nimble at speed but at slow speeds, especially in a U-turn use of the rear brake for stability is darn near mandatory. 
 

I sat on a GS1200 and an ST1300. I like the feel of the Kawasaki more. I would have liked to test ride them but the show I went to wasn’t offering these as a test ride option. 
 

I like having a tall bike, especially in traffic. Though I must admit I truly miss my Kawasaki Vulcan 900 LT.

My ST1300 was an excellent machine that I enjoyed.  Nonstop power throughout the power band.  I traded it as it was getting to be too hot for me here in Texas and to be honest, I wanted some updated suspension work and some of the electronic options available now.  It was top heavy, but as soon as it started to roll, it wasn't a problem.  I find the 1000 Versys to feel a lot less top heavy than the ST, whether moving it in the garage or just starting to roll the throttle.

Looking back at this, I have to ask:
Does this mean Pat is starting to embrace the California Lifestyle ?
