I'm Raul, I'm from Porto Alegre, South of Brazil. I bought a G650GS last december and I used to have a Honda 250cc but I got very trired when I went to the road.
With the G650GS in less than 200 days of use I run 10000 km (about 7000 miles) and I have some projects to make some trips to Latin America.
My experience is about 4 years only, but looks that I ride since I born.
I used to travel to US very often and maybe some time I can met some of you around the States and of Course you have a friend in South of Brazil if somebody decide to make a journey to this side of the World.
I'm buying some items for my bike in US because or sales tax here is too higher and since I have an office in Miami I ship to there and from there to Brazil.
My plan is change my 650 for F800GS Adv (RED) in december, because I will be more confortable (I'm little tall for the 650).
My next trip to US will be in august 2nd, to Cincinnati and than to Miami. I will go in some BMW dealers I need to buy some items for my bike.

See you around the world!
