    '99 f650

    Just picked up a F650 for my wife and I. It fits her perfectly and is very excited. The bike is all black and is a beauty

    great runner with heated grips, corbin seat, nice italian wind screen, fast way pegs, LED rear light, new TC80 tires, recently done steer head bearings, voltage regulator and water pump, as well Jesse Bags

    37000 miles, strong runner. Turns out I knew the seller, we ride off road rallies together

    this will be a prefect bike for my wife such that she will have her own bike to go on a trip together next year. Objective this year is get her confidence up such that we can ride to the finger lakes rally labor day.

    stay tuned for questions, I am new to the F650 motor.

    Graham, are you coming to the rally?

    The GS Giants will be holding an Adventure 101 Seminar on Saturday. We are also having an all women ride aimed at beginners which would be perfect for your wife. No off-road experience necessary.

    We'd love to see you both!

    I think your wife will be very happy with her new bike. The F650 is a fine bike and very reliable.

    Went through certification and licensing yesterday with no issues

    Off for a ride today!

    Well I had to do one thing... One blinker lens was broken so a set of LED blinkers and flasher I installed.
