I have a Versys 650, and love it. When I first bought the bike I wasn't that excited about it, but used it as a DC city bike (Urban Assault Vehicle). The handling is amazing, simple to do slow tight maneuvers and confident in high speed turns. I love riding the bike now, its very comfortable, long trips 8+ hours no problem and great riding 2 up. A taller windshield would be a nice upgrade.

Currently I live in Norway (near Molde) and this year I picked up a used Honda VFR750 and absolutely love it! The handling and comfort match the Versys (low speed maneuvers are slightly harder) but the V4 engine is much more exciting. Recommend searching finn.no or equivalent in your region.

Motorcycles are crazy expensive in Scandinavia (everything is), i nearly gave up looking... Also have been contemplating a snowmobile.
