My brother-in-law is looking to buy his first bike. He's been looking for a while to find a good cheap used bike, but they are hard to come by.
Thus, he's thinking about going all in and buying something newer. He's mainly thinking about the F650GS, which I initially thought would be a good starter bike, but the more I think about it the more I think he might want to go for the 800. It won't take long for him to develop riding proficiency, and I imagine that once he does he might become frustrated with the fact that the 650 is essentially a subdued 800. Likewise, he's 6'3 so the height wont' be too much of an problem. I've never ridden an F bike so I'd like to hear what you all think on this subject.
