  1. G650GS Discussion
    The reasons for my upgrade are covered in other posts and I don't want to rehearse well vented issues about the warm start problem on the G650GS. A fix seems to be available so let's move on.

    I have just purchased a second set of wheels for my 2001GS because I use the bike every day for work but want to get back into off-roading at weekends. I propose to fit some decent off road tyres to the second set of wheels. According to most write ups metzler Karoo's are better than TKC 80's...
