F650 Gs

I had a chance to ride the new F650 GS today while the BMW demo fleet was in town, 'nice bike. Unfortunately, it had the lowered suspension w/ lower seat which was a bit much given my height (6' 2") but I was impressed by how smooth and powerful it was. 'Not sure what they do to the tuning on the 800 version but the 650 was plenty fast, faster if memory serves than the DL650 I use to have. I also sort of like the less Rambo oriented styling. Really, I rode it do get a feel for the parallel twin engine in the new frame but having done so, I think I may actually like the 650 variant as well or better. 'Certainly it added it to the consideration set vs. the "what we're they thinking" attitude I had towards it before. 'Impressive bike for the money.
