Newbie from Wombourne
on: December 09, 2016, 07:34:50 AM
Hi everybody, I've finally done the deal and will be chopping my Versys in for a 16 plate Cr in red with less than 700 miles on the clock.
Only problem I have is that I don't get her until Jan 5th.  :003:
But what a great, late Christmas it will be!  :046:

Sounds like a similar deal to mine (190 miles 2nd-hand).

You'll love it.

Thanks and the same  to you.
The dealer told me he was using it to travel to his shop and back, what was your reason for the low mileage of yours?

Guy bought it despite multiple bikes in his garage and never rode it. Sold it back a year later. :087:

Welcome!  :031: Red ones are definitely the fastest.  :028:

What's your reasoning behind chopping in the Versys? It was on my list of candidates, but I never got round to riding one before I saw the genius of the CR...
