Best of the Forum: Would a new F650 GS make a good FIRST bike

BMW thumpers are an entry bike for some and a life long passion for many forum members. With a brand new motorcycle endorsement in hand chtucker went to the Thumpers F & G bikes forum to see if a F650GS would be his starter bike. During the life of the thread he received advice encouragement and found his F650GS. In other threads he asked questions about gear and Colorado riding information. I dont know where he has ridden his GS but his starter bike thread has ridden to the Best of the Forum.
