I saw the new Versys 1000 at the NEC show, well as much as can be seen at that show.......however a visit to my local dealer this weekend gave me the opportunity to view the 'basic' model in great detail, and it is spectacular

I have ordered a top of the range SE Grand Tourer which will bd available in February /March 2019.... the specification is far too much to list....AMAZING  !  I cant wait

ah that explains that. I hope you both enjoy your new bike. Was it secondhand or new?


Pete the clue is where Colin says the bike had just come in as a part exchange.  :whistling:

Pete, as Iíve mentioned many times before, I fear not if I experience problems with my GSA as despite it being used it comes with a two year warranty so I can rest assured that I will have at least two years trouble free riding and by then Iíll be due a new bike which comes with a three year warranty.  BMW love them or hate them, they certainly have excellent customer focus especially at my local dealer, Allan Jeffries at Baildon.

Was there no method of lowering the Versys rear foot rests like the Gtr?


Pete, Iím just saying.....but donít you think itís ironic that on a Kawasaki site the only current topic activity is about BMWís and in a good light.  :popcorn:








Strength to the brotherhood that is bmw.  :whistling:

The GS doesnít have any bizarre traits such as you have just described. I just fire it up and off we go.  :clap:

Colin, I genuinely never thought I would gel with the GSA as I have. I thought it would be underpowered  and I expected the wind protection to be non existent with such a small screen, it is neither. Obviously itís not as rapid as the GTR but itís a great bike.


I have a trip to Scotland booked for next year which Iím really looking forward to experiencing on the GSA, Iím doing the NC500 plus some other parts of the West coast. It should be epic.

The GT is quite a big bike, how does it match up to the GTR?

That's BMW all over, top notch service. Which model of BMW did you get?

They are quite tall although you can lower the seat. Mine is alpine white.

Yes, it should be. Iíd like to try and get at least an overnight stay in Scotland this year before it gets too cold and miserable and then next year, Iíll do the usual five day trip up there revisiting the West coast etc. Iíd like to do the NC500 on the GS, I did it on the K16 with Charlie but itíll be fun doing it on an adventure bike. Happy times are ahead.

Ok, so Pete (PRD) will come on here slagging this off saying it's shite, it'll break down, the build quality is crap, wait for all the problems you'll have with it, blah, blah  :censored:  blah.


The fact is, I've had no bike for 18 months and then I bought this in early July from my local BMW dealership and I couldn't be happier with it or indeed the excellent customer service I have received from BMW. It's a used 14 plate GSA with all the toys on it and whilst it's not in the same category as a GTR, it suits my current needs and as I'm due to retire next year, I thought I'd treat myself. I'm looking forward to many trips up to Scotland on it in the very near future.  :clap:

And the failing gearboxes and electrical melt downs.  Pretty good apart from all that. Then there are the dealers.....

It really must be a bundle of laughs in your house. 🙄

Not everybody!! Some of us have more taste. Perhaps it is the collapsing front forks.....
