    FS: 2020 Kawasaki Versys SE LT

    No problem Sierra, I wasn’t taking offence but thanks for clarifying and I agree it is a 4 cylinder vs twin :)

    FS: 2020 Kawasaki Versys SE LT

    You misunderstand me. I love twins and my S10 is smoother than my Kawasaki was, but the power delivery, flexibility and perhaps the character of my old Versys 1000 is, for me at least, better than my S10. Since I started riding motorcycles 55 years ago, I have only owned 6 multi-cylinder bikes...

    Ermmm.... No,I actually think the Kawasaki Versys 1000 has a better motor than the S10. In fact, I really do miss the seamless drive of the Kawasaki motor, if the fancy takes you, you could run down to about 25mph in 6th Germany and open the throttle and it would go, OK, it wouldn’t rip your...

    What tyres does your S10 wear?

    My 2017 XT1200Z came with Bridgestones on, (A41s if I remember correctly) and I found them really good. When the time came to change, (I always change as a pair), I put my money on Michelin PR5 Road Trail tyres because I really like Michelin tyres and I have been delighted with them as I have...

    Givi Airflow vs Stock Screen

    Had my first opportunity to try out my new Givi Airflow screen today. Because we are limited to “essential” journeys due to the COVID pandemic, I took advantage to delivering my parents food, (they are both over 90 and my mother has Alzheimer’s), which I do twice weekly. I did a round trip of...

    Type of helmet you wear...

    I really don’t go for the so called adventure styled helmets, I can see the peak being useful on sunny days but I think the noise and lift is a big minus point for me, so my current helmets are a Shark Carbon and an Arai Chaser

    I had a 2008 Buell Ulysses and I thought it was a fantastic bike, certainly right up there in the top three motorcycles I have owned since 1969!

    The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is a truly great bike with the best motor that I have ever owned. :)

    UK Dealer Response to Mileage Rant

    The same thing happened to me when I was looking for an S10. I had a 5 year old Versys 1000 with 26,000 on it and one dealer told me that “it had almost twice the average mileage“. When I pointed it out that the Versys was a touring bike and I had actually used it for touring they looked at me...

    Givi Airflow vs Stock Screen

    I have to agree, the Airflow won’t win any beauty contests but it is function over form and that is more important in the real world. Plus, I had one on my Kawasaki Versys 1000 for 5 years so I had plenty of time to get used to it!
