    My BMW was the same. I like what you said about the Buell. That sounds like it's really more useful.
  2. Yes, the instrument cluster is a bit different...

    Yes, the instrument cluster is a bit different for the 2015+ models. It has a 5.5 gallon tank, and the bulk of my riding is surface streets. I'm going to let the range get closer to 0 and see what...

    The range no longer shows "if the fuel level gets too low after the fuel level warning indicator starts blinking." I haven't ridden it to that point yet, as MOM doesn't specify whether that means...
  4. Kawasaki Versys 650 -- Day Tripped and Broken In

    When I last left you (http://www.beginnerbikers.org/showthread.php?39326-Kawasaki-Versys-650-Two-Hundred-Miles-In), I was only a couple hundred miles into my 2017 Versys 650 ownership. I'd determined...

    This. A thousand times this! You have to try on bikes, just like you try on clothes. There are a ton of fashions I love, but after trying them on, I learned I cannot wear them. Better to try on a...

    Due to this thread, I actually paid attention yesterday on my way home yesterday. Apparently I use three fingers for regular braking. I'll say it's because of my wee hands, rather than trying to be...

    Loved reading this, but for some reason, I can't see your photos. Boo-urns!

    I just read your recap, and that told me exactly what you meant earlier in this thread. If these are the trips you want to take, I think you'll have nostalgic thoughts of the Versys, but the...

    In my case, I just meant that there's something I've missed about each bike I've traded in. For example, I still miss my Shadow Spirit in some cases, but I know there was a huge reason for me to move...

    I at least try to keep things in reasonable limits as I break in engines. There is no way I can keep within those limits on the freeway, but I can at least do the "variable speed" thing and ensure I...

    I'll definitely keep up my observations. No one likes hearing me talk more than I do. lol

    I've found that with each bike after my first, I have some regrets. But...if, by "more adventure focused...

    I ride in Houston traffic. In short, no worries about keeping a steady speed for a long length of time. Oh, and I would love to get your input/suggestions on going two-up on a mid-sized ADV bike. My...

    Oops, apparently I'm not supposed to get her over 5K RPM in the first 600 miles. Eh \_(ツ)_/ I'm sure I haven't broken her. Besides, how the hell am I supposed to get her to the speed limit on the...
  15. Kawasaki Versys 650 -- Two Hundred Miles In

    So, I've had my 2017 Kawasaki Versys 650 (aka "Phantom") for three weeks and have only put about 200 miles on it. I know, I know...but my commute is only 10 miles a day, and my weekends have been...

    Definitely post your thoughts after you give the F800 GT a test ride.

    I'm trying to be "good" during the break-in period, which stresses keeping RPMs below 6K in the first 600 miles. On the freeway, during break in, I need to keep my speed under 70, or else it gets a...

    No worries. I was going to write up something about it after I am able to get more than 100 miles on it, and after I get more highway miles on it. But here's my quickie comparison:

    Yes, the F800...

    I have a name I'll try on for a while -- Phantom. We'll see if that fits her.

    Also? I kind of miss Eyegore's hump. I was stopped at a train the other day, and I had nowhere to rest my elbows as I...

    I can't think of "Akita" without adding "Evita!" afterward. I've seen "Rent" waaaaay too many times.:lol2:

    Her name will come to me. I only have 50 miles on her. It's like we're still on our first date, and we're still getting acquainted.

    So, in other news, today the dealership is coming to pick her...

    She hasn't told me her name yet. I'm trying to avoid the obvious ones, like Bullet (as in "Silver Bullet"). I *might* name her "Duck" or "Ducky," because..."Kwaka." But my softball team lost a...
