The following is offered for the individual looking – thinking about purchasing – comparing - a 2019 f 750 GS. Nothing real technical here but a few opinions this buyer might find useful. Please bear in mind – no one can choose a bike for you – what one rider likes another doesn’t. It’s ALL VERY personal. That said, here are one owner's opinions. Personal info: Male – 72 – 6’ – 31” inseam – 185 lbs dry. Fairly long on riding experience – maybe an advanced intermediate skill level. Hooligan days are behind me and I lean more towards the practical these days. About the bike in no special order: Color: Austin Gold. Many, many compliments. Glad I got it and not the white. The bike's color appears to change as the light changes. Seat height: factory lowered. VERY reassuring at stops – both feet firmly planted. TFT display: an absolute joy when riding (seriously) and a PIA to operate (seriously). It does exactly what you ask it to – PROVIDED you know what button or wheel to push / turn. It takes 6 separate inputs to clear the trip odometer. I finally wrote the steps on an index card in my tank bag. Works like a charm. PROVIDED…oh…I already said that. Along with all the usual, it gives you outside temps, freeze warning, low fuel warning, clock, and the list goes on and on. Consult your manual – which should be completely redone. Somewhere between shameful and pitiful. Owners deserve FAR better. Miles to date: 2,500 – all is well. Bike is settling in nicely. COG: Not high – but not low either. Definitely not tippy but at low speed, keep it upright or the weight will catch you out. Once underway, bike is stable – steering very precise. The bike goes where you ask it to quickly with minimal input. “Agile / responsive” would be appropriate. Windshield: I HATE helmet shake. If you like the wind on you with no real ill affects at all – leave the factory windshield installed. I installed a fully adjustable MADSTAD windshield (my 3rd on different bikes) and wouldn’t own the bike without it. It’s that good! (For me) MPG and range: Before purchasing I noticed this bike only having a 4 gallon tank. BMW says 55 mpg available. If your riding is more spirited – based on one bike’s results – 50+ would be realistic. If you ride more leisurely and keep your RPM’s in the 3,000 to 4,000 range @ 55 mph +/-, I can get 64 mpg – measured at the pump on my calculator. That’s a realistic 250 miles in a tank. I can stop twice in a few hours and still have at least 75 miles in reserve. That’s reasonable and comforting for local and distance riding. Cruising steadily on the BRP – my TFT has shown 70+mpg. I believe that’s possible. Power: sharing the same engine size and torque figures close to the 850 GS – the 750 GS will deliver everything a reasonable rider will ask for – and then some! You can lift the front wheel on this bike, easily. That said, if that’s your wish bike – consider buying something else. 3rd, 4th& 5th are your workhorse gears. Lots of room between these gears takes the work out of riding. If you can handle the wind, 6th gear and 80 MPH on the slab for an extended period is easy. Best way to describe the overall feeling you get when riding this bike – composed. Maybe not as composed as a 1,200+cc cruiser but much less frantic than a high-spirited race bike. Not judging better or worse here – just saying apples and oranges. Choose what you like. Seat: IMHO, not plush but surprisingly comfortable for 2+ hours, at least, and yes, I am a spoiled rider. YMMV. Ergonomics: comfortable. A very nice compromise between cruiser and sport bike. Heated grips: FANTASTIC. 3 seriously great settings. A truly nice advantage on a cold day. Cruise control: EXCELLENT. Does exactly what’s expected. Adding or subtracting mph – very easy to operate and works in 1 mph increments with highly visible readout on TFT. Luggage: I went with the black GS hard luggage which snaps directly onto the bike. NO luggage racks. Love that feature and they compliment the bike's appearance. Downside: they are side opening. I’ll deal with it. Tank bag: Touratech - snaps onto the gas tank ring. It does what it needs to. Accessories: I’ve added LED front lights, crash bars and a rear “back off” light. I especially like those PIAA front lights – and the rear light. I am seen coming – and folks really do back off behind me. They don’t like that added rear light at all! A heated jacket. Jacket cord snaps into a small, short plug next to my left leg. With the right pants, these vests / jackets will let you ride more often and in total comfort. Electronics: 12V outlet on the dash. Cord goes into the back of my tank bag. In goes my phone – ez-pz. Ram phone mount is on the handlebar – currently empty. Aftermarket GPS? Jury is still out. Wrote about my concerns somewhere else in another thread and won’t bore you with those details here. Summary: I thought long and hard between the 750 and 1250. I was willing to pay the cost difference but in the end I did not feel that that difference bought me $8,000 more bike. That's a compliment to the 750, not a criticism of the 1250 < which appears to be hands down more popular. I’m happy with my decision and every time I ride, I know again that I made the right choice. I’m planning my bucket list ride for September. I probably left out something important, that’s what 72 years will do. I hope this has been helpful. Cheers everyone.
