    Hi all, Not currently an F650 (or even BMW) owner but have testridden and like the F650CS as a potential replacement for my current MZ Skorpion Traveller (Yam 660 single engined thing). My conclusions were that it had very similar engine characteritics but a bit more go, even easier to flick...
