I bought a 2013 F700GS in mid 2016 with 9600 miles on it. It's primarily a commuter bike - 45 mile round trip - for days when I don't commute on the bicycle. About 17K miles now and I feel it's a great commuter bike. It's been very reliable and other than the cost of all the accessories I needed to be able to commute year round, I'm quite happy with the bike. The only thing I don't like is the weight and the top heavy feeling. At 5 9" and 150lbs I can comfortably flat foot the standard height, but pushing the bike in an out of parking spots, garage etc is tedious. Especially this time of the year with leaves on the driveway, it's a bit tricky to push the bike in/out of my garage and turn it around. Next time I will definitely look for something lighter, but this one is a keeper for the next few years.
