  1. F650 Single Discussion Worth looking at this, alos worth pausing to read the handwritten note half way through 1958 BMW R50: Boy meets girl, gets married, buys motorcycle. Rides it for 60,000 miles and has accident when wife is pregnant with 3rd child. (me) Wife orders...

    Hi all I recently bought an F650 ('99) for commuting to work. After an initial feeling of disappointment from the wheezy performance and lack of grunt, I am starting to get used to the bike. I stumbled across this forum a few days back, and was chuffed to see so many people local to me - and...

    I am looking to upgrade the current BMW plastic vario panniers on my 2001 Dakar to SW Motech Aluminium panniers. Therefore, the original panniers would be available, with 2 keys and all fittings etc. How much is a fair price to sell these? I'd rather not sell through ebay but do it through...

    I am posting this because I am interested and because I wanted to try the poll function just to see how it works Are the high performance after market filters (oil and air) worth it? Place you bets now :big grin: If you want to name brands of filters, feel free.

    I've decided that it's probably time to sell my 2004 Dakar. I just can't seem to cope with 160 miles a day on it for my commute. While I lived 20 miles from work it was cool, but at 80 miles each way, it's getting 'un-economical' to ride and I'm not feeling as fresh as I want to be once at...

    How much is it worth - my 2004 GS 35k miles, very well maintained and big jobs recently done (water pump, s/h bearings, braided hoses, r wheel bearings). Of course not showroom, but no damage, no corrosion, new tyres, vg c&s etc. Thinking of sticking it on eebay.... Any clues? Joc

    N reg F650 23K on the clock, fair condition, usual flaky silver paint, small cut in seat. Serviced regularly and has some service history. Givi top box. My hands just can take it any more, white finger no matter what gloves I use. It's getting daft. No idea what to ask for it though.

    Im having my fork seals replaced under warranty and its been recommended that I get some gaiters fitted. Are they worth it? Do they really block some air flow to the radiator? Also do BMW make these or do I have to get them from elsewhere? Ive seen some in the Motorworks catalogue but im not...

    There has been much lgged in regarding extra lights and the techy stuff like modulaters and wigwags, I now wonder if they are really anything more than a toy for us The scene is the M25 (I decided to slum it and use the 25 to get home) Thursday afternoon/evening. I am heading home on the A3 to...

    I know it boils down to mileage you cover and so on but I just would like some real-life examples (opinions) of F650 owners and their Scottoiler's so i can decide which version to plump for... Maybe some people reckon they're not worth getting at all?? cheers, dan :think:

    Hi all - What's the opinion on ABS - is it worth specifying on a new F650CS? Most of my driving will be on the A2 - Kent into Central London, through rush hour traffic....

    due to an unexpexted complication (being unable to pass DAS) i now find myself in the unexpexted situation of sitting a restricted licence test (just can't get the hang of those pesky u-turns) would an f650 be a suitable bike to restrict or should i be looking for something smaller if geoge is...

    Fellow thumpers, SWMBO promised me some extra front lights so I need to "chase while the iron's hot" (!!) :roll: Who has extra lights on their 650 and have you got any pics of how they are mounted (stoppit!) and wired up? [[Dazzer - how's yours?]] Touratech have some but I don't...

    Does anyone have a hard tank case for their CS? Is it worth having? Any thoughts would be helpful as my wife wants to buy me one for Xmas!
  20. F650 Single Discussion
    I am considering buying new from a dealer and i understand that ABS is an optional extra. I have read a couple of reviews that say that it is very twitchy and probably best left out. Any comments? PS. Very impressed with the prompt response to my earlier topic on pillion riding. Obviously some...
