Except for the extra weight of 1100. The 1100 GS is a great bike - but for a beginner F650 GS is easier to handle, IMHO also performs better on loose surface + uses some 20% less fuel.

exactly, look for "Wolne pokoje / Zimmer frei" signs on private houses. they are plenty of those and May is not the high season yet, so you'll find accomodation for two at 80-100 zloty per night.
