f6f0gs not for noob

76 R90S first bmw followed by 1150GS, 1300GT, 1200GSA and now a 2012 F650GS The R90S was a kick. The next three were good bikes. Now, the kick is back. The 650 runs and shifts great. Has a 525 lb payload and gets 60mpg + on the road. Is 125 lbs lighter than the 1200 GSA and does handle different. But the 650 is a kick to ride I have close to, if not over, 100,000 miles on beemers so I guess I am no longer a noob. Hell, if you like a 34 cc turnpike rocket with a web seat enjoy it!!!! I met a 6' 2" + 650 rider on my 8500 mile ride this summer and he has about 100K on his 650. Carries hs dog with him. He thinks tyhe 1200 GS bikes are nice, but his 650 is a hoot. critics go easy please.
