Hi everyone

First post and first adventure bike. Recently got a G650GS and trying to squeeze some miles to get to know the bike. Im enjoying the ride, though must say that I would need a bit more time to get used to the riding style.

No modifications or accessories yet, and Im still trying to figure out what is actually needed, what fits, what works, and trying to not fall into the trap of getting inappropriate gear.

initial observations - I didnt expect that the seat can actually get noticeably hot while riding. Im not sure if its the heat of the engine or if its just our weather here (asia - start of summer). Front suspension also seems to be on the soft side. At the break-in maintenance check, Im considering having the fork oil replaced to something thicker (bit odd - when i checked the manual, i couldnt find the fork oil specs.)
