I have to ask, though, is your F650 lowered? I stand about 6' tall and I can't even come close to standing flatfooted on my F650 GS Dakar.

Hello Milhaus,

Wilma bought the bike from an employee at BMW` in Munich, they took a `normal `GS ( with abs) and put on the bodywork from the Dakar .

My halo usually washes out a photo, but by using a unique combination of filters this one turned out ok.

(those 50 mm of slack are absolutely neccessary when you have increased the suspension travel btw.)
I will take it all into account. The mechanico says I burst a link on the chain. Don't know how, I do remember taking a small branch out of the chain and sprocket a few hundred miles ago. So Mike the mechanic says some of the other chain offs he has dealt with managed to lock around the front sprocket breaking parts off that area would have been even more pricey than replacing my bent swingarm, chain and sprockets. If I had the money I would have gone in with my printout of the offroad chainguide-but I will be dining on top ramen this month, I am thinking of sitting on the curb with my bike and empty helmet and a sign "will ride for change".
