Finally, my 2011 BMW F650GS

  1. Hey Guys,
    After having a G650 on order for so long, I decided to bite the bullet and pay the extra to get the F650. Im so glad I did, for the extra 2500 its so much more bike, fuel gauge, ABS, temp, tyre pressure just to name a few options..

    first weekend has passed and Ive already done 600km's lol.. One thing I found BMW don't really move on pricing or anything, I got a whole $500 off but the rider incentive atm was $1500 worth of rider gear so that made up for a jacket n summer pants..

    So comfy and it feel really versatile, It feels like a sports bike on the twisty's, but stand up on her off road n she holds her ground nicely!

    I'm new to the forum as well, so if anyone has any adventure riding tips n stuff, please feel free to send them my way!

  4. nice...
    I'm one for an all rounder kinda bike.....:LOL:
  5. Nice bike Troy, I have ridden one and they are brilliant bikes. I have been tempted to buy one for a while now, but not sure the wife would let me add a 4th bike to the stable! Please give us an update in a few months from now and let us know what you have done, where you have been and how it has worked out for you. I might trade the GS500 for one yet.
  6. Nice looking bike their mate.......
