Welcome, Gary -
No one here will recommend the Versys over the Strom. Now, the Honda Cb500x? That is a different story!
All the adventure bikes have their pluses and minuses. Have had an '09 Wee for the last 4 years and am happy with the platform.
Will run down the highway all day at 80 mph and finds its way admirably in the twisties. Great manners on dirt, dry grass (wet grass is the Devil!) and packed gravel. Once you get into sand, wet clay or loose gravel, different story, and different tires needed!
Tons of support and accessories for the Strom.
Good luck with your hunt for the right bike for you.
