    Yep, no more V-strom. And yes, I am on the Versys forum. Going to meet a guy in Eustis this Sunday to go riding. He's like you...retired and rides everywhere!!!
    Just put the CTX on Craigslist last night. I will miss it but having two bikes, as great as it is, can be costly. Plus, I just know I'm not going to give it the attention it needs.
    Then again, if I know myself, once the CTX is gone I will want another. Or maybe another V-strom???

    Probably one of the most torquey motors I've ever ridden! It is missed and maybe one day I can sit on yours with sargent seat to see what the difference is from the modified seat I installed on mine. So, no more Vstrom?
    Did you join the Versys forum?

    Yep. Love my new Versys! Lucked out with a guy on the forum selling a Sargent seat. Snatched it up and I rode to Daytona and back with no numb butt!
    Man, when I drop it into 5th and twist that throttle, the Versys moves!!!

    Pretty much why we stopped going to Biketoberfest and Bikeweek after attending since 1995. The loud speakers on these bikes annoy the **** out of me! I thought I was the only one so I feel better now.
    BTW, aren't you riding a Versys now? I had a 2010 Versys that I loved, but sold it (like the NC700) because I couldn't get the seat comfortable for long distance travel.

    I posted up a short sample of the Hells Half Acre ride in the video section. It's better than the video can capture.
