Aussie BMW F650/G650 Thumper Thread. GS, Dakar, Sertao etc

I've looked, but can't seem to find an Aussie F650 riders thread. Can someone please highlight my ignorance and point it to it?

If it doesn't exist, why not?

Because we're too busy out riding. (Or getting coffee).

Start one up and we'll see how we go...

New to me Sept last year, but it's supposed to be a Spanish 2000 model with 67k (at the time).
I've added another 21k since then mainly commuting into Brisbane each day and weekends practicing picking it up on our farm .

I'm new to all this, but totally enjoyng spending money on things I don't really need.

My Old Beastie. An 09 G650GS (compliance plate says F650GS so to me thats what it is) just on 70, 000 in three years.
Great little machine to get back into riding after a ten year lay off. Progressed to an R1150GS now and I'm teaching the wife to ride the 650. Love em!
Cheers
Fati
