    I guess I'm envious of anyone that enjoys their G650, I've put a lot of money into mine trying to make it more comfortable. Just riding the 30 miles to work feels like I've been on the bike all day!...

    I had so much trouble with my 2012 G650GS when I first got it that I'm afraid to take it too far from home. I've only put 6k miles on it in a year. Btw, a 4000 mile trip on a G650GS, I don't think I...

    If your talking about the new bikes, the G650 GS has a 650cc motor, the F650GS is actually a detuned 800cc motor. And the other difference between the two is about $2000.

    My bike came stock with a 47 tooth rear. I get 63 to 65 combination city/hwy. The 47 tooth is probably fine, maybe I'm just not used to running highway speeds at 4 to 5k rpms.

    I have a 2012 and find the stock seat very uncomfortable after only 30 miles in the saddle. I can't imagine riding all day on that seat. Good luck on your search.
