Thanks

Thanks for pointing this out. Now the rest of us can bookmark this post and point it out to our wife or husband when they think we are nuts for buying a new farkle.

Only have two and one is hers.

Nice wheels, Mike. And in case you're wondering how to break her in, here's a suggestion .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

related?

little brother? here are the things I noticed from the picture that the LT has in common with the F650:
both have
2 wheels/tires
a windshield
a gas tank

not sure if that qualifies them to be related... oh yeah, forgot the magic element: the BMW emblem! congrats on the purchase, nice lookin bike.

Congrats on the new addition, now you'll have to go and ride the Dakar. I've been watching this years round and as good as I think I am/was (in my own mind) I would never have attempted Dakar. Every year someone dies riding a bike in that race.

How much snow is that I see in the background?

Cheers, Bill

Thumbs up

Fun bike to ride and now a collectors item since BMW discontinued the Dakar,
at least in NA.

The snow in the background is at 9 inches. I would take it out now if it wasn't for the salt. I guess I'll have to wait like I did this last summer when I bought a new sled in march when all the snow was gone for the winter. Soon as the lakes firm up a little more I'll bring out the studded cr250 to run with my 14 and 15 yr old boys. I still can pound them in the woods and on the track but each year their getting closer.

I guess I never really paid much attention to the F-GS line much. But when did they stop using the cross-spoke tubeless rims, like on the R-GS?

I do recall, back in 2000 or so the F-GS came with the tubeless rims (as well as the Aprilia Pegaso before it was discontinued).

My wife had one of these, fun, but really crap to ride over the long haul! Hope it won't sit in your garage too long!

I would rather be riding my bike and thinking about God than sitting in Church thinking about my bike!
