    Brand new F700GS rider

    Hi all,

    I would like to introduce myself. My name is Marty and my first bike was a 1975 Kawasaki KE 250 Enduro that I purchased in 1977. My best freind had a Bultaco 250 Alpina and he taught me all of my off road skills. My other riding buddy was my high school German teacher, He had a BMW R60. That's where my appreciation for BMW's started. In 1985 I purchased a 1975 BMW 2002 automobile. It was and still is the best car I ever had. When I decided to get back in to riding, after a thirty year absence, I looked at alot of bikes...However I knew that I would be getting a BMW. The Boxers were calling my name but I went with an F700GS instead. I would love to hear from other GS owners about their experiences.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum! This is the first confirmed purchase of the F7 and I'm sure the members will be interested on how it is going for you. Once you get situated you can drop into the F-Twins area and help bring a little life to that section of the forum.
    You can also fill out the rest of your profile when you get a chance. Any questions- just ask. Gary

    Welcome to the forum! As Gary said, I think you are the first F7GS.

    As another GS rider, I look forward to hearing your feedback. What type of riding are you interested in?

    Also, please take a moment to fill out your profile and help the group get to know you a little.

    Just checking signature. Adding info to my profile is trickier than I thought it would be.

    F7GS for us too

    Hello. My wife and I also just bought two F7GS. This bike fit her perfectly, and after I realized I wasn't going to need the F800, I went for it as well, and we are both very happy. Happy Trails from NorCal!
