G650 Launch

Went to the G650 Launch in Scotland on saturday.
the bikes look good
the Xch is a cool looking dirt bike but a trail bike rather than an enduro bike as BMW call it - its too heavy. but for a trail bike id prefer a bigger tank 9.5lts under the seat with no obvious way of making it bigger. do bmw have a deal with expensive after maket accessorise companies to perfect the bikes they make?

the Xcountry looks a bit girly in the press pics but it is actually a cool looking bike proberbly the best of the three. designed as a road bike/scrambler - a good efort id say but tank size even more of a problem for this bike.

Xmoto - yep its a supermoto in an old fashioned kind of way - i think KTM are moving the supermoto thing on this year with the 690 and hopefuilly the duke next year.
