I almost bought my brother's first gen F650 (which was basically a pegaso) when he sold it. I may still some day get a f650gs twinplug, as the singleplug one I borrowed for a month was a total blast to ride, even with its surging throttle.

The twinplug was a very good change BMW did to Rotax engine.

there wasn't much rotax left in the GS version even before they twinsparked it.

My first

Bought my first bike, the long wait is over ... well, almost over - currently doing my driving licence. Hopefully couple of weeks and I can take it for a spin :). But "winter is coming" and most likely no long rides in this year.
Cant wait to put the ADV rider sticker and couple of thousand miles on this thing ;).

phew. nice beautiful brand new machine. I *HIGHLY* recommend you buy a cheap used beater bike in the 250-650 cc range, something naked (eg, no plastic fairings), thats pre-dropped, and learn to ride on it, as you almost certainly WILL drop your bike a few times at low to no speed in the first couple months, and it would be shame to scrape up that purdy thing. and expensive (mirrors, bar ends, pegs, brake/clutch levers all cost $$$ on beemers).

when you're comfortable riding, you can probably sell said beater-bike for what you paid for it.

Thanks for your advice and concern, but I am planning to invest my money to all kinds of crash bars instead of the another bike. And I donīt mind some scratches here and there ... it is GS after all :).

cheers mate
