    Okay, so it's not much of a ride report, but there's a little bit on my blog here. I bought a 2009 BMW G650X via the classifieds on this very forum not long ago, and finally got it on the road today (previously I had only been on it for a short stint on a private paved road and maybe ten minutes on some private trails I usually only mountain bike on).

    So far I love this thing. Previous bikes include Honda VFR800, Honda CBR600F4i, Honda V65 Sabre, Kawasaki KLR650, and a BMW K1200GT. I think I like the G650X better than any of them. No, I definitely do, but of course I do...it's the Shiny New Thing(tm). :D Anyway, looking forward to filing a few more interesting ride reports.

    It came with the farkles pictured, but I've got some panniers and other odds and ends still sitting in their shipping boxes awaiting installation.

    Looks like an area I need to check out. Any pics from the ride?

    Sadly, the entire time I was riding, I was on a bit of a schedule, so I didn't have time to stop. But I will have more pics in the future...and even some HD videos.
