To trade or not to trade, that is the question!

Hi all,

So a friend of mine just brought a possible trade scenario to light for me, and I'm having a bit of a crisis! I might have the opportunity to trade my 2010 F650 GS (ABS, centre stand,...

I had a pretty major lowside at about 80km/hr on dirt. The handlebars bent, the Barkbusters didn't (the left one looks like someone took a vicious sander to it). Although there was some damage, I'm...

Well, I already have two bikes, the F650 and an RC-51. If I figured it was worth the upgrade, I'd trade both on an R12GS. The dealer seems keen to do it. The RC is a blast but completely impractical...

F650 to R1200

Hey all,

I have a farkeled out 2010 F650GS, which I love to bits, put a ton of km on (including the Trans-Lab). Problem is, I keep hearing the 1200GS whispering to me. Took one out for a drive on...

I agree with Tonopah 100%...go for the 658GS! The crowd on here will definitely push you to the 800 for sure, but as a first bike, the 658 is ideal. It can more than keep up with the cruiser crowd...

Love my "650"

Personally, I love my F650GS (except for the name). It's wonderfully noob friendly, it's light, and can easily cruise at highway speeds and then some. If you listen too closely to what some say on...

Yeah, I do have a blue 650 twin! Have our paths crossed? I've been in Moncton quite a bit this season.

Trans-Labrador on Sunday

Hey,

For anyone interested, leaving New Brunswick on Sunday for the Trans-Labrador Highway on my F650GS (twin). Figured someone here might find this interesting/useful. If anyone else is...

I'm with Gester

My situation was just about identical. Although I used to ride dirtbikes when I was a kid, it'd been years since I'd even been on a bike. This past winter, I ordered up a new 2010 F650GS, did a...

I have the Jesse skid plate, mounted with a set of Givi crash bars on my "650". Bought it from these guys (Canada) http://www.dualsportplus.com/. Their price seemed reasonable, quick shipping. No...

I have to agree with Huckleberry. I had the 658 off-road for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was outstanding. Did some abandoned logging roads, sufficiently degraded enough to...

Kudos to Dendrophobe for heading up to Newfoundland! That's where I'm originally from, and just got back from vacationing there this week. I made the trip on my F650 with a set of Caribou Cases and...

MRA Vario Screen

I've put about 5000km on my MRA VarioTouring screen, and I quite like it. It's a huge improvement over stock. You still get air (it certainly doesn't turn the bike into a Gold Wing), but it is much...

Hey. I just picked up a new 650GS (insert rant about name here). I was told to keep it under 5000 rpm until the 1000 KM service. Great bike, burned through that 1000 KM a lot quicker than I thought!
