Many thanks for posting
I know how much work goes into writing these reports, I've done a couple myself and would think long and hard before committing to another. To me you have the right mix of words and pics, the pics are fantastic by the way, much better than my feeble attempts.
I have an older model F650GS (2004) over here in Japan and like it a lot, it's a good size for the roads we have here. Very interested to see how the later model holds up.
I'm lost, I've gone to look for myself, if I should return before I get back, have me wait.
