Yahoo! I just rode home on my new (to me) 2003 F650CS tonight. Grinning from ear to ear. I bought an R1100R last month....and it was way too heavy for me to manage (I'm a new rider) So, when I was in getting a flat fixed on my little Honda 250cc bike, I mentioned to the guy that I had decided to get an F650CS. He replies "We have one." (this is at a Yamaha dealership)
Well, after picking my jaw off my chest, I went to look at it, figuring that it would be a yucky color, or really high miles, or a rat.
Nope. Black and silver (well graphite is the proper term) which is the color I had chosen, only 4400 miles, and clean as can be. I test rode it last night and bought it today. I love how it feels! Nice, low center of gravity, nimble, pretty forgiving on torque and HP. I have to learn it all over again, but it isn't intimidating at all. So I traded the little Honda in for it.
Damn...I went from my first bike in May to my third bike today....I'm done buying bikes for a while!
My husband is loving the R1100R though. Looks like it's his early birthday present....he's been telling people that I got it for him for his birthday. Last night I told him, "Happy birthday! I bought myself a bike!!"
