    Feeling like an outcast already

    and I haven't even completed the swap of my 1150GS for a 650GS.There's so much out there for the "heads"(air,oil,hex) compared to the 650,it's amazing.
    Sure the sheer numbers dictate that,but searching for parts and accessories,info and the like is a dearth compared to the "heads".What I find in any area is a fraction of what I'm used to seeing for the twins.
    f650.com is a font of info so far.Non-plussed to say the least.

    Just tried to get information about maintenance on my wife's new fz 6 Yamaha from an owners website and it took me three days to find out if the fuel disconnet would stop the flow of gas if I took it apart. I couldn't believe how fortunate we are that this website is so active with knowledgable and willing to help members.

    It's because it's different. My love of boxer engines goes back a long way. Back in the 60s, I drove and repaired Corvairs. The world was full of parts and information on the small block Chevrolets but parts and information on Corvairs were rare. Mechanics wouldn't work on them and the aftermarket paid little attention to them. They were a great little car with a good boxer engine that was misunderstood and destroyed by the misinformation of Ralph Nader.

    I was an outcast in my high school among the Novas, Chevelles, Corvettes, etc.

    Nobody held a gun to your head and made you buy a 650 ...

    meeting in Florence,SC,which is about halfway between Ft Lauderdale(me) and West Chester,Pa.(him).My 1st ever bike swap-there's no end to the excitement.
    Now the reason I'm swapping-the 1150 won't fit through the gate of the house I'm leasing in Merida,Mexico beginning April 1.But the 650 will.NO CACA.
    I'll post pics of bike and house next week.

    There are more aftermarket accessories for the more expensive bikes.

    Shouldn't it be the F & G Forum

    since were already 2nd class citizens (denizens) and were here 1st?
    I would suggest the S & M Forum,but it would garner the most attention and you'd be a busy moderator.
