    Hello there I’m just about to buy my first bike and the F650 is very high on the list. (Dare I mention that I’m also looking at a Suzuki Freewind). I’m checking out a few at different dealers but being a newbie I find it difficult to know what to look for. Already found a lot of useful info on...

    Having ridden a Suzuki GS500 for 3 years I'm feel that I'd like to move to a more upright bike. Partly for medical condition reasons, and partly because I'm moving offices and doubling my daily commute. Whereas at the moment it's all intra-urban, from October it's going to be partly urban...

    You may well recognise me from my TOO TALL FOR A FUNDURO? post (thanks for you replies!). So I've got a few lined up to go and see this weekend.

    Hi All ..... I am considering buying an F650CS. I was wondering whether you can answer a couple of questions.: Typically how much should I pay for a nice example ? What are the MPG figures ? How often do they need servicing? If you can help it would be great! Thanks, Mark
