I get the impression that unless you are at least on a F800, you are settling on a inferior bike.

What I really don't understand is that the Vstrom DL650 is considered a perfectly respectable bike but has a smaller motor than the F650. How does that make any logical sense.

Is the F650/700 to BMW what a sportster is to HD? Will calling it a F700GS change the mindset?
You are correct; ride what you like and don't worry about it. I just went from a KTM 450 EXCR (Considered one of the best hardcore street legal trail bikes) to a pair of KLX 250s. Honestly I have more fun on the pair of KLX's. The BMW F650GS has a low seat height and that is why it is utilized by women.
