Good day. I'm considering getting a '98 F650. The bike appears to be in excellent shape and has all the farkles I need (maybe a new seat is needed). I'm a loyal Beemer rider with most of my riding done on K's. I Currently have an R11R and strongly dislike the neediness of the boxer which is the main reason I'm trying to get away from her. The majority of my riding is commuting but I usually take at least two longer (1500 miles) trips per season. Anyways, I'm looking for any input and/or advise you guys have to offer. Is its lightweight a legitimate concern when touring? Is it even a competent touring machine? Any maintenance issues? What kind of mileage should I expect? Any and all comments welcome. Thanks.
