The contemplative life and Motorcycle travel.
Seeing these videos always makes me want to do a little off-roading. Sadly my Gladius isn't the best machine for it.I have heard mixed things about the f650gs. Some people love them and others don't like them. I've no first hand experience with them though.
Dear Dan:I know more than a few folks who ride the F650GS, and they have no complaints. Certainly none that they are sharing with me. However, I thought the F650Gs and the F800 were about the same size, the primary difference being a detuned engine on the F650? Do you have a yen to ride off-road?Fondest regards,Jack RiepeTwisted Roads
come to think of it, is height a major factor to consider when purchasing a motorcycle?

The F650GS is a bit lower in seat height; important for me, being a short guy ( 5'8"). I like getting my feet flat on the ground, especially if I'm wrestling with it on a trail.I'm starting to get the desire to be able to do at least some light off-road riding. On our trip though Montana last summer, we ended up on a very loose gravel road. The F800ST just couldn't deal with that. It wouldn't have been a problem on a GS.
