    I don't know how I managed it but I went right up until the age of 58 (4 years ago) without having a driving licence. At that time my middle daughter, Her partner and 2 children moved to New Milton which is in the New Forest, Although only a little over 40 miles away it was a nightmare to get to...

    Hi all, I went with a mate to get a GS last night (2000 W, 11k miles, good condition bla bla) BUT on the ride home (me in car just ahead on motorway) my mate, Pete, stopped for fuel and immediately threw all his water. It looked as if the expansion tank cap was not on properly and had...

    Had my 2005 GS for a month or so & got down to some routine maintence last weekend to familiarise myself with it. Very different to anything else I've owned - 2 part oil change for instance. It went ok - Sump plug no prob with specially bought 6 sided socket. Old oil was 15 months old with about...

Give it some thought and get booked into the site - details are in the thread of the same title in the Get-Togethers, Meets and...

    I've booked my pitch and warned the nice lady that there will be 10 to 15 pitches needed. Quote "F650 motorbike group" or "friends of Mr Daley" when booking. From the reviews and maps there is a pub 5 minutes walk away, and another pub in the village that's also good for food. On site there's a...

    Bought my F650GS last summer. Whilst sitting at lights/junctions etc, it sounds as if it has engaged first gear very well (there's the very familiar clunk), but when I disengage the clutch to pull away, it most definitely isn't in first gear - it's in neutral! This happens about 8 out of 10...

    Hello all! I'm popping over here from our US f650 site to ask a quick question. I was reading in RIDE magazine, the June edition on page 25 the "winner stays on" article. The editor states that he has a "Motomod Assen" winter jacket. He praised this as the best winter jacket hes had in 23 years...

    has anyone struck the problem of difficult gear selection on the early (96) f650 boxes, doesn't want to go into 1st, its like synchros are not slowing things down enough to allow selection, oil perhaps, too slippery, would be grateful for any thoughts

    Getting off my bike on my way back from Dartmoor I thought I had the stand down and got off the bike and down she went. All appeared to be fine but occasionally now the bike slips out of 1st back into neutral. This happens when I am stationary and just about a second after I accelerate away...

    Hi All, Went to the BMW off-road school last weekend and had an excellent time. Crashed loads, learnt loads, best of all it wasn't my bike :-D . Plucked up the courage to take my pride and joy on the local byways for a couple of hours this morning. Had a great time and didn't crash or drop...

    I did my first trail on Sunday. Ok it may have been only a mile or two (on the Sarn Helen) but it was very exhilarating. As Steve Smith put it ?Like riding on marbles.? :shock: But what a brilliant way to get to know you?re bike. :mrgreen: We also rode some great mountain roads around Mid...
