Where's the BMW F650GS group?

I was looking under the Thumper forum for BMW F650GS folks. I've found the Dakar folks, but are we all lumped in together? Works for me, but just wondering if there's another group I'm missing.

Cheers,

Don't miss www.f650.com. Great bunch of folks and the Technical FAQs are a wonder in themselves.

Edit: Above is for the twin. I see you have the single. Thumpers is the right spot.

Greer and Grandpa Ken,

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I'm already a Chaingang Member at F650. Met them at the BMW rally last year in Redmond OR. Great bunch of folks. As for the other BMW forums here on ADV, I figured Thumpers was the right place seeing is I don't have a twin... Thanks again.

Cheers,

Bill

Yeah BMW changed the nomenclature designations of their whole lineup in 2009 so the G bikes are singles and the F bikes are twins, nice and confusing since the F650 has been a single for so long....

And even more confusing when they name one of the new 800cc twins F650...
