Let's see your F650GS pics!

So, there is alot of other threads about certain bikes going on right now. I thought it'd be interesting to take a look at everyone's Little Beemer shots. I'll start:




Who's next?

Here's my little beast, an F650 GS Dakar like BMW should have made it in the first place imho:







Since these pictures I rerouted the front brake hose, shortened the gearing (15x49), removed the mirrors and removed the RAM mount on the left hand side.

To be done:

remove ABS (not sure about it yet)
higher seat
replace sump guard with an aluminium one
tilt over IMO and relocate windscreen so I can read the IMO while standing
fit a techlusion
ride and ride and ride...

I'm in the middle of doing just that (and TT suspesion and Techlusion and a few other things). I'll let you know how the ABS removal goes. I'll post pics too, when I'm done.

Great looking bike Mr Kool, where did you source the front guard? Looks more useful than the standard "beak" and probably won't so readily crack across the mount, like most do after some serious adventuring (mine twice now been plastic welded), I'd like to find something like that.

I'll show you mine...

Greetings fellow F650-ers.
Here's my ride. This is how it usually looks. I'm on the permanent camping budget, so this bike doubles as my house.

It's an el-cheapo UFO Enduro fender. Thanks for the compliment.

Firstly, wouldn't it be easier to just have a switch inline with the ABS fuse, that should turn it off easier then the stupid switch that BMW has done, my ABS always turn back on while in the bush, then its like shit its back on.

Did you remove your instruments? can you give me more information on the cockpit setup ( I love it, something that I would like to do)

What forks are you using? and how easy did it connect the triple tree???

thanks for the inspiration

Me, too. Would appreciate info on wheel/tire setup, forks, and other fundamental mods that make it more offroad worthy.
