    Goodbye and thank you all.

    Firstly thanks to all whose posts I have read and learned from.
    Sadly I could not get on with the CT and have traded it in for another Versys.
    Below is how I found a manual Highlander
    Engine-10/10, suspect it uses dylithium crystals for the warp speed.
    Handling-10/10 high speed....5/10 low speed due to being so top heavy
    Gear box (manual) 2 to 6 great, no problems however, 1st, 2nd, 1st is from the traction engine era.
    Got fed up with frightening women and children when selecting 1st while slowing down.
    My advice to any potential buyer, get a DCT as it's clear this is where the development money was spent.
    Better still, TRY a Versys   :159:

    Tried it and it wasn't for you, that's fair enough.

    No doubt the Versys is a good bike. I've looked at them myself,  theyre a good looking bike and bang for buck they're hard to beat.

    Congrats on the new bike and ride safe.

    Oh dear this doesn't bode very well for me,I pick mine up on Friday and intend to give it a good run on Saturday so we will see,
    every one is different and hopefully I wont encounter any issues  :021:

    Test rode the Versys 1000 couple of years ago - and it's worse than a Crosstourer in every single department: engine, suspensions, handling, comfort, equipment, looks.

    Haven't test rode the Versys 650, but when I sited on it in the dealership it felt disgustingly cheap-made and low quality bike.
