2010 BMW F650GS Twin

by Regina Lee
(Springfield, MO)

This BMW is my third motorcycle in a years time. I started out on a Yamaha 250, rode it for a month, sold it and got a Honda Shadow 750. I rode the Honda for almost a year. A motorcycle couple I frequently ride with ride BMW GSs'. Over the winter I started to researched the GS bikes and decided the F650GS twin was the bike I would like to ride. I chose the F650GS twin because of it's weight under 500lbs, cornering ability, the engine size 798cc, uses regular gas and its great gas mileage average of 60mpg. It's a great and fun bike to ride in the Ozarks mountains where I live. I love it.

I want
by: Guenevere

I have been looking for a bike to do some adventure touring on. I've been reading lots of forums and this bike seems to be the one I need.

Great bike

I was also looking at the F650GS for the off/on road capabilities. I wanted to ask you regarding the low seat. Did you find using the low seat without lowering the suspension or pegs that your legs were bunched up when riding? We were looking at a F800ST with just a low seat and my husband said my legs would be bunched up because the pegs haven't been lowered as well. Can anyone give some insight on this? Thanks

Your story sounds about like mine. Started out on a Honda Rebel, rode it about 2 months, moved up to a Suzuki 800 which I really enjoy. In fact I just finished riding it from PA to the Outer Banks. Was an awesome trip. But I will be looking to upgrade to a BMW in the spring. I'm looking for a F800ST. My husband rides an 1100RT and we want to start doing cross country together.

I just bought a 2013 F800 GT myself for much the same reasons. A couple of my friends have your bike and after doing some research I decided on this one. I'm getting up in years and not only not getting younger, I'm also getting shorter and this bike had a choice of seat heights. I flat foot on the lowest without a lowering kit. ABS brakes and traction control, light, responsive and still carries all my crap when I take off on a long trip like I'm presently planning the end of this month. This is my sixth bike. My last, a HD ultra was very comfy and I rode it for about six years, but it was getting up in miles and I was ready for a change. Getting comfortable on my first 'sport' bike required a bit of a learning curve for this ol' gal, but I'm in love with it...so many bikes and so little time. Have fun, good choice.
