I am new to motorcycles, and plan to take my beginner's class next April. I just purchased a 2003 Honda CB250 to learn on, and then I want to purchase a BMW. The local dealer in my area, recommended the G650GS. I am reading all I can about the bike, and would like to know why it is referred to as a "Thumper". Is it due to the sound the engine makes?
Thank you for your replies and any recommendations.
