I have been looking at BMW GS models for a long time and finally have decided to go for it. I haven't ridden a motorbike in 25yrs so I wlll be taking a weekend riding safety course before I go for my motorcycle test at the DMV. I have my heart set on a F800GS and wondered if anyone else here on the forum has one as a first bike, because it has been so long for me it will be like my first. Also, I have never bought a new bike before, can you wheel and deal like buying a car ? I saw a 30yr anniversary model today at a dealers and it looked awesome, I would love to own that bike. Anyway, thanks to all, in advance for any feedback to this thread..
