My new 2008 F650GS (twin) is here!

Picked up the new baby today!!
What a loooong wait! But it was worth it!
What a blast to ride! Tractable, so chuckable into corners. Still keeping it below 5K while it's being broken in. Didn't notice most of the things raised like the bobbling brake reservoir, but I guess I was too busy riding it! Went through both heavy traffic and open roads. It struck me how sweet sounding the engine is with an equally rorty sounding exhaust. That twin has grunt. Only thing I really noticed was my butt complaining a bit after about 40km. I think once the seat is broken in, it should get better. If not, Airhawk here I come. The other thing was getting used to that BMW switch gear... why can't they just have the turn signals like everyone else? Got most of the accessories as nobody else has made anything available here yet. Engine guards and hand protector spoilers still to come. Aiming for a longer ride tomorrow, tootling around the country roads here. Should be fun!!
