Hi - my name's Mac.
This is a great forum - loads of useful advice - and I look forward to speaking with anyone that takes the time to answer any of the many questions I'm bound to have over the coming months.
I've been promising myself for the last few years to fulfill my ambition to be...
Hi folks, I'm a member of Boxertrix but am seriously considering selling my mint R1100s sport and joining the ranks of the smaller engined GS users
What I've seen on your forum is great, lots of comment and interest
Is the 650GS a 6'-00 guys machine?
Hi as a new F650 (1998) owner I was surprised that a service kit for the brake calipers was not available from BMW. Problem solved the Honda Vigor uses the same Brembo calipers front and rear the service kits are available from your Honda dealer they even come in Brembo packaging. I hope this is...
Hi guys n girls joined the site yesterday all looks good, I brought a BMW F650 last week as a non runner repaired it in a day easy fix was the clutch starter bearing went out for a ride and was all good but now unfortunately I can't use it as I decided to do an oil change you can probably guess...
32 years since I sold my MC. I now found the Scarver to be a nice bike for a Norwegian grandfather going on 2 wheels again. A 2004 model with only 6500 km on the clock was bought last month, and soon the snow is in the air here. I'm already waiting for the spring 2011!
i have just picked up my 2000 Funduro, needs a little bit of work, tail light unit does not seem to be attached to anything, One indicator not blinking and could do with a respray. Although I took it for a spin yesterday and loved it despite the faults.
What a great site, thanks. I spent a few hours researching the site before deciding to buy an 03 Dakar with 11k on the clock. No mods or extras just a very good condition original bike. BMW service manual only has 600 mile dealer stamp so wanted to get the BMW 12K service done...
After months of research I eventually bought my 'new' F650 single yesterday. It's a 2005 Dakar with low mileage but I have big plans to rack up the miles/kilometers over the next few years.
First impressions are that it's completely not like my other bike (KTM RC8). Not in a bad way...
Just thought I would take a few moments to introduce myself.
I live in Slaithwaite near Huddersfield and I have owned various BMW'S over the years but not one of the single cylinder models.
I am currently looking for a F650 Funduro around 1996/7 vintage to use as my everyday bike. I...
I have now had my GS for 14 days and have already driven 1500km.
I like this bike very much and enjoy riding much more than what I did, when I had a sports tourer (600 bandit).
I hope very much to learn many exiting things inhere. I have already found one thing, which I will try. I will...
Hey guys! Just joined the forums as I will hopefully be a GS owner very soon. My 2 year license restriction gets lifted in 20 days and I'm hoping to find a dakar to help me celebrate. It'll be my first big bike as I haven't had the money to ride since I got my license. Can't wait to start...
Hello all, my name is John, I'm 46 years old and live in sunny (sometimes) Bedfordshire.
I am just about to join the ranks of F650 ownership having put my name on a 2006 Dakar. I have been riding for getting on 3 decades and the current stable consists of a 2008 R1200GS and a 1987 Guzzi NTX650...
I've just bought a 1999 F650 which is the first time I have owned a fairly large single cylinder motorbike. In the past I have had large sports bikes but as I'm now nearly 60 and my body doesn't work as well as it used to, I've had to find something more sensible and comfortable to ride ...
Just thought i'd introduce myself - picked up a F650 1998 the weekend and really chuffed with it so far ..
going to be starting a new job in a month and will be using the bmw everyday rain or shine for a 50 mile round commute down the motorway to sunny birmingham..
Glad i have somewhere...
I'm a new member and although I haven't got a motorbike (yet) I am possibly looking to get an F650.
I am a short girl and I think it would probably suit me :)
Nice to see some people from Portugal here... (incl me)
However I'm glad I'm in the UK...even if it's just because the roads...
New member .. had my F650GS for a year now to allow pillion girlfriend .. not getting out enough though!! Bloody rain of Britain doesn't help! ;)
Anyone recommend any places to go/meet/ride outs?
Tina & Samantha.
I thought that I had already introduced myself, but perhaps that was on another BMW forum or, my brain is finally going addled.
I am an Englishman living in South East Bulgaria and I bought a 650 (2003) model Dakar here in Bulgaria from the relatives of another Englishman who died from...
I bought a F650 GS (2005 reg) recently and love it!
This was bought for on and off road trips and seems like a great bike for both.
Unfortunately I dropped it (!) yesterday and now need a new clutch lever and left side mirror. If anyone knows where I can replace these...
