Perfect - all the junky useless extra weight that BMW seems to think we need already removed.

And these older F650s were BMW/Rotax engines for real - not crappy Chinese knock-offs "based on the Rotax design". Price seems good with all the already done performance mods. It's a real dual sport (a heavy one, but a real one).

Great thing about the Dakar - even on knobs you can cruise it comfortably across the country at real bike speeds then head straight into the sand and mud without even stopping to air down the tires.

If I were to get it (and I'm looking at my bank account right now) I'd head straight for the TAT and enjoy a leisurely but very fun ride back.

(edit - I'd remove and ship a bunch of the junky plastic back first though, like the chain guard and license plate extension - just more stuff to get in the way when you are off road. And I'd replace the turn signals with a flush mount set in anticipation of breaking the stock ones off on the trail. The handguards aren't the best but they function (I know for a fact))

And that Rotax engine is bullet proof. One of the best I've ever encountered. And 70mpgs with wheelie pulling power.

The more I think about it, the more I really want that bike.

Not today. Some little jack wagon thought it would be cool to tear down my mother's mail box, paper box and driveway numbers last night. On my way to repair or replace those.

So you were serious about only being 10 miles out? I'm still at home. Oh well. Where to next?

To get to this tag you may want to ride Barefoot south (southeast?) off of 42. If you ride this Sunday AM you may find Christians sharing their Light.
