Quite right, the 650GS has got to be one of the most under-rated bikes around at the moment. Mostly, those with an opinion of how un-capable or "lady-like" they are have neither owned nor actually ridden one. Me, I just enjoy getting out and about on mine.....



....and to anyone who still thinks it not capable!!

My old 2003 F650GS/Dakar.

I had an '02 GS/Adventure ( way too HEAVY ) for the gnarly Dualsporting that I do, so I moved to the Dakar. This was an excellent Bike, that could handle almost anything that I could throw at it. The Dakar was just awesome on the road, and I did quite a few things to make her better in the dirt. Still wanted to lose more weight...so I just went to an '02 KTM LC4-640/Adventure. Mission accomplished...but OHhh I miss my Dakar on those 600-mile days ---> Getting to the Dualsport Rides !!!

Now I have enough respect for the Dakar...that if I could only have one Bike, that Dakar would be mighty high on my list. SOLD her to a fellow in California ( made a new friend in the process ). Rode the Dakar from up in Minnesota to California for Delivery. That is a statement about the bike. Oh,
the trip to California was after first driving down to Kansas for a "Kicking" Dualsport Ride !!!
