yep, kind of did the same thing , I came to the realization that I like the comfort and ergonomics of a more standard bike with lot's of amenities as well so I bought a NTX and added it to the stable. One word kind of describes this bike "uncompromising"
all my other bikes have their own good qualities but one of them is not long range comfort. I did keep the sprint ST but it has more of a directional purpose now.
you will like the versys, I have a few friends that ride them and a matter of fact one of them set his up for a long haul and took his to the article circle and had a great trip with no issues at all.
I felt the same way, and am selling my Daytona, keeping the Sprint and added an '03 Tuono for the comfort mix. That bike is like a Versys on steroids. Good for everything with a better windshield and some bags!
