Yeah I've heard of it. It goes like this: "using tools provided under seat, first remove oil cap. Second, remove motorcycle. Replace with dual-spark motorycle. Replace oil cap."

Whoa, but seriously, that's cool if it works somehow...

Great looking bike Mr Kool, where did you source the front guard? Looks more useful than the standard "beak" and probably won't so readily crack across the mount, like most do after some serious adventuring (mine twice now been plastic welded), I'd like to find something like that.

I'll show you mine...

Greetings fellow F650-ers.
Here's my ride. This is how it usually looks. I'm on the permanent camping budget, so this bike doubles as my house.

It's an el-cheapo UFO Enduro fender. Thanks for the compliment.

That's kind of a cool picture. Are you sneaking up on him?

On the hunt for a dual-sport

Maybe I should have started a new tread, but figured I would get an answer pretty fast here. We (Wife and I) are trying to find a dual-sport for her. I will be getting a V-Strom 1000 very soon (currently riding a ST1300) We tried having her sit on a V-Strom. Way to tall for her. Lacking about 3 inches or more . Of course she wasn't happy at all, specially after I told her she would have to ride to Prudhoe Bay from SC on her VTX with knobby tires . So after about a week of intense research, we have come to the conclusion that a 650GS would suit her fine. However, she is worried it's not going to have enough getty up and go when she have to ride interstate. She don't expect VTX1300-kinda torque/power, just enough to be able to maintain 70-75 for hours on end without strain on the bike. So what say you? Your answer will be very important to her, because as we always ride together, we will be riding together on the dual-sports too.

Very nice pics, folks......

The 650GS will do 90 to 95 anytime she wants it to. Mine is best at 75 to 80. I just cant believe how smooth it is for a single. I bet you will drive the 650 and be suprised at how good the bike feels and handles.
