Well, I'm back in the BMW fold after straying for a few years.. First BMW was a 93 K75, then in 99 a R1100R followed by a 2002 R1150RA. Then went to a 04 Honda ST1300 which I LOVED. Sold it for medical reasons then made the mistake of buying a 07 Triumph Bonnevile T100 which I never liked. Tried to sell it for over a year with no luck so ended up doing a trade over the Internet, my Triumph for his 2007 BMW F650GS loaded with farkles. Never owned a dual sport so figured I'd give it a go but would most likely be trading it in for something else in short order. But guess what, I LOVE this thing, most fun bike I've had in years , in fact of the 40 plus bikes I've owned since I was 16 I rank this thing in my top 5 favorites. So I guess it stays for a while
