IMO the 01 F650 gs is a great bike to get your feet wet in "Adventure" riding. It's not as fast as the Wee, but has enough power to get out of it's own way and will travel two up quite well (many will disagree with that comment) Has decent fuel range (uses Premium however) and will feel considerably lighter than the Wee due to the location of the fuel tank under the seat (especially usefull off the beaten track). Spoked rims apparently are much better than cast rims offroad too. F650.com is an invaluable resource again IMO. I own a Wee but would love to eventually pick up an older F650gs especially for learning how to be a better "dirt/gravel" rider
