Great stuff guys. Mine is due in 3 weeks... Arggg.
Something like a 50/50 on the front, and a 60/40 (do they even make this) or 70/30 on the back.
Although the battlewings preformed reasonably well @ 17psi over the soft deep sand near moab, Oklahoma. I mean binger, OK.
I can say I at least hung with the more experienced. Most of the roads we rode on were a combination of soft deep red sand and slickrock.
We stopped here because of this
We made our own bypass through the woods, hence the name rusty machetes.
Deeply rutted steep sand climb. The KTM 640 got buried half way up
After the dirt tracks, we hit up some more new gravel roads all the way back to the city. Well most of the way, we drove highway 152 at least half way back
I had the F650 cases, never had them on a GS. Much better than the F650 variant with the four latches, one bar that smoothly expands them or puts them back. I really like them, I also like not having the aluminum skin, which would grind through and fly off in a get off, DAMHIK.
Spacewife wants them for the ST, thank heaven they don't fit.
Expansion sounds similar to the 12GS varios. Thanks, Phil!
I just traded in my 650GS (single) on the new 650 twin (today). Pics by the end of the week.
Hi! New to the forum here but been lurking for a while. Just got my ride on the 6th:
First and last picture of it clean.
It seems to love the mud, even with the battlewings.
Thanks for sharing these pics with us. I'm about same height and inseam, just heavier, looks like it's lower than a KLR, which will make it easier to handle in the slow stuff.
Welcome to Adv! Nice bike, even nicer pics! You a pro photog?
Just plain Fun!! Couldn't be happier!!!
Here is a shot of the Akropovic Exhaust the dealer put on...Cool Carbon band and tip. Great sound.
Hi Blackie. Thanks for the welcome and yes I WAS a pro. This bike is my wife's gift for me - sort of a graduation from pro photography world = loooooong story.
She says now I can shoot for myself again and so I thought, "what better way to celebrate shooting freedom than to do it as I ride?". So here I am.
Yes it is sweet! Varios are the factory panniers? What screen is that?
Is it much loader then stock?
Much ligther then stock?
Good pictures of the new GS's, a buddy of mine has been counting the days
all summer long until he gets one. He can't wait.
berkly, glad you didn't hit that small cave (airbox check) on that dirt
road, pothole grande.
'08 F650GS twin (lowered). LOVIN' IT!!!
I'm waiting on the sidecases and I think I soon have an "appointment" with the Touratech catalogue...
Nice freaking pics everyone. I'm still waiting until we get confirmation on a large tank for touratech. I think it's just an ego thing.
about the same, with the silencer in. A bit more growly, but not obnoxious, with it out. I'm switching back and forth, trying to see if it makes a difference in my mileage. So far, doesn't seem to.
It's 6 pounds lighter than stock, too, which is the important part.
