    Lowered F650GS at the Rally?

    Is there someone attending the national rally with a factory lowered F650GS (single cylinder) motorcycle that would be so kind to let my wife sit on to see if she is comfortable with the height? WeÔÇÖve been looking for months for a factory lowered model but have not had any luck with one being close enough to try.

    She'd also be interested in trying a lowered G650GS or a F650GS with the Kouba links installed.

    Thank you in advance.

    Last year in Gillette BMW brought one or two lowered bikes with the demo fleet. You might want to wander over to the BMW area and check.

    lowered F650GS

    My 2005 F650GS is factory lowered. I'm 5ft tall, maybe even a bit less. My toes touch ground but not my heels. I'll be glad to show your wife the bike and my technique for handling it. Reach me by email at the rally Friday evening or Sat. I'll pick it up through my Blackberry. My email is shown through my profile. Thanks, Joan

    i will be there with my factory lowered 2007 F650, NY plate: 65-MPG. if/when you see it parked feel free to have your wife sit on it.

    PS: my bike has a custom seat on it made by Mr. Ed's, which your wife may or may not like.

    parked next to my bike will be an '06 factory lowered bike, Texas plate: sngl chk which will have the stock low seat on it.

    Where in Wisconsin...

    are you? I've got a factory lowered F650 (the true F650 - single cylinder) 2007 bike. I"m in Milwaukee and would be happy to meet up. I'm taking my R1200GS to the rally (and am leaving on Monday the 6th) but after the rally, I'm available to meet. You can PM me or at my email address tvgal2000 at aol.com. I'm planning on selling the F650 once I return from the rally.
    Thanks Todd

    lowered F650gs

    Todd, Did you find a lowered bike at the rally and what did your wife think? Hope you both had a good time. I was surprised at the attention my bike received. Guys would stop and look it over. (I'm pretty sure it was the bike and not me they were checking out.)
