1999 R1100GS. Best of the oilheads IMHO. They had a clutch cable and the 5 speed gear box was just right. YMMV, peace.

Keep an Eye on the Oil Level

My 2009 wee will use a bit of oil when I hammer it (80 mph plus) in hot weather. If I keep it below 6000 rpm it uses no oil. Other wee owners report the same. If you ride hard, check the oil level...

Good to hear!

It's good to hear about the dealerships that go above and beyond. The FD issue would be a bummer for sure. Maybe BMW will fix this one day.

First Year Teething Issues.

They made some cool changes to the wet-heddis. My concern is protection of the radiators in a minor tip over. I hope they sell every one of these so I can buy a 2012 on the cheap. Peace.

Test Ride.....

I ride a 2009 Wee Strom, and if I were to ride 2 up, the 100o would be my pick. The 650 is "OK" solo (IMHO). Good luck.
