    Hey everyone. Last week I picked up a 2010 F650GS with 15k miles. It's in really good shape with just some minor maintenance items to take care of. I absolutely love the way it rides already. Day and night from my Honda NC700X which never grew on me. Lot's of accessories came with it including side and top cases. I'll probably look into a skid plate sometime. For now it's maintenance and just having fun!

    Congratulations and welcome to the GS family. I hope you enjoy yours at least half as much as I enjoy mine.

    Get some knobby tires and wear yourself out.

    You bought the wrong bike. That's not an F650GS, THIS is an F650GS :p

    I got one of them too, love it.
    Change your fuel filter every 20,000 miles and fix up the top shock mount, they are the 2 weak points. Apart from that fill the tank, change the oil and ride it.

    What’s the issue with the top shock mount?
