    November is a long time to wait. Can you go sooner? Where'd you get that screen in front of your engine? And the extra lights and bracket? Nice set-up!

    Where did you get the seat bag you have pictured on the bike. How do you like it? I'm looking for something similar.

    Just happened to be looking at all the new 650 pics.... nice bikes guys!

    That bag is a Wunderlich tail bag for a R1150R ...it fits the 650 also quite well...it has an expandable capability going from about 4"tall to 8"ish. Also has a small map pocket on top .It has two wide canvas straps that velcro together under seat.

    I want to go over the Andes in the summer. I'm told that December would be a good time for that. I'm going to ride my R1100RT in Europe this summer (northern hemisphere) and then come home again for a little while before heading to South America. Might make a start a little before November, but not too much sooner. At least that's my thinking at the moment.

    As for the farkles on the bike: the picture is how it came (along with nice boxes on the back sides. I'll be adding some bars around the engine and faring area and a GPS and maybe some other stuff, but I don't know where the previous owner got the stuff that's on it now. So far I've only had it a few days and only ridden it a few miles.

    I like it. Lot's easier to ride than the RT at only half the weight. Now if only I could get myself down to half the weight, we'd be a winning combination!

    07 F650 Gs

    Just got it a week ago. It was 20 deg. on my first ride, but well worth it.

    My '99 F650....great memories.

    My F650 carried me on many a fine ride, including from the BMW MOA Redmond rally (2001) back to Alaska via the Cassiar & Alcan. A couple Dust to Dawson rides as well. Sold last year to a good friend who absolutely loves it. I replaced it last September with a V-Strom 650.

    First time for everything

    I've never tried attaching a photo so I hope this works. This was taken on my trip around Alaska last year.

    RTW stuff

    Pacwestgs,

    I have found, after many years of travelling by every conveyance imaginable, that if I pull out of my driveway needing a tent and a sleeping bag, I'm going to require as much stuff for a three nighter as I would for a 30+ day outing. Being retired, I seldom know much about a trip other than the departure date. I have fine tuned my luggage for the little GS by adding 41L aluminum panniers and a bomb proof Seal Land bag . . . this has lowered my profile greatly and you can actually see me on the bike from behind now!

    Harboring hate or resentment is like taking poison and hoping the other guy dies.

    I give you a compliment and you suggest poison - I'm confused (but usually am anyways )

    Cheers and safe travels

    NO! NO! NO! You misunderstood . . . that's just my sort of tagline aimed at people who don't comprehend that negativity, as a frame of mind, only comes back to victimize the originator . . . I took it as a compliment . . . please don't be offended . . . oh, Hell, go ahead, be offended . . . I hate it, and resent it, but go ahead . . .

    Floyd, I'm deeply offended that you would think I would be offended by that offensive self-conscious, self-absorbed, self-minded, hypocritical wishful hatred targeting my rice-paper thin skin...

    But you're right it was a misunderstanding because I looked to see if it was a tagline or signature and only found used here.

    And, although I departed here because of the negativity about a year ago, my skin is much thicker than many would believe.

    Heck, I was going to ask if you had the kitchen sink hiding in that pile somewhere


    Hey it's all good, and that is a nice photo

    . . . and the kitchen sink . . .

    PacWestGS,

    And there you have it!

    I type out the tag line from time to time 'cause I think it speaks the truth
