    F650cr

    Anyone have any experience with a F650CR? This is a bike I know little about?
    I am looking at one as a beginner bike for my wife and adult son.
    I would appreciate your comments.

    It's a tough engine that makes decent power for a 650. Enough power to entertain, but not so much to over-whelm a newbie rider. The bike is farly light, narrow, nimble but stable. It can putter along at an easy pace or spend the day running at 6000 rpm. Good learning bike.

    I have friends that bought a pair of F650s, and he and his wife rode from Green Bay to the southern tip of South America and back, nearly 18,000 miles. Not a hiccup with the bikes.

    Must be a typo, because the right model is a F650CS. That's the F650 with the funky little bikini fairing and storage pod where the fuel tank is normally on most bikes.

    I posted a "F650CR" as a design idea to make the F650CS into a modern thumper cafe racer, hence the "CR".
