    Hi folks, I have spent a wee while reading the various comments on the large number of topics. Is there much of a quality difference in the manufacture of this bike from its birth up until today. Obviously there must have been changes, bearings etc etc etc however has there been so many that...

    Hi all, I'm considering an F650GS but, after reading some of the messages in this forum, I understand that build quality & robustness aren't necessarily up to the usual BMW standards. Am I also right in thinking that older models were made for BMW but not by BMW? If true, is this still the...
