Moving my daughter this weekend

Or else I would definitely ride, regardless of temps. Sometimes it sucks being responsible. Where is my goof off support group when I need them? :huh

I'll be at dinner tomorrow so if it is convenient to bring the F650 bits you have, I would be grateful. Thanks!

I'm in as well.

Sure love the look of that new Ducati scrambler. Close but not as aesthetically beautiful as my old Xcountry 650, but still good looking. 75hp adds to the looks too!

i had a 2010 with vibration

In the end, 2 coils were replaced and it solved the problem. I had had valves checked, tire balance and pressure, fueling. Coils were the problem

Thanks folks for the feedback

I figured there shouldn't be any issues with the 2009 650GS, but you never know. I had a few bugs with my 2010 1200GS with the HP2, but they were minor and fixed right away.

Thanks

AC10 looks a lot like my 6 day enduro

And they were bouncy and squirrelly on the street. Aggressive wide spaced tread does that. I've still not found a front tire I really like. That rear does look good. Let us know
