ProAn excellent all rounder

ConsUses funny BMW switchgear

BMW had an image problem a few years back – whilst the bikes they made were fantastic, they tended to appeal to more mature riders, and had the reputation of being just a bit uncool. Then came along two actors, who had some crazy idea about riding round the world, and the rest was history – or...

“Review of BMW F650GS”

ProGood around town

ConsMotorway Speeds

I’ve owned the F650GS for 2 years; there are good points and bad for the bike. Handling at motorway speeds, this bike is not the cruiser as it appears in its looks. On more than one occasion, at speeds in Europe above the 80mph limit stated when the panniers are fitted, the back tries to overtake...

Satisfactory

ProComfort, smoothness

ConsGears, indicator position, lack of power

OK, a review based on 40 minutes rideout at the BMF bash doesn't count for much, but it left some strong impressions in my mind. 1.
