My husband bought this 2009 Kawasaki Versys last week, and we picked it up yesterday from the dealer in Edmonton. It was a cold day and the highway was snow packed in places, icy in sections and generally not great condition, but we made it there and back with the bike in one piece, albeit needing a sponge bath, lol.
He chose this bike because of the comfortable seating position, tractable power and all-rounder nature. The first mod is a Jardine slip-on exhaust. The bike already has heated grips, factory gel seat, hand wind deflectors and top case rack.
It's gonna be a long wait til the snow melts!
