    Hi there, BrianS here...I joined MOA last month and drive a cosmic blue 2013 C600 Sport (on the road Fall 2014) that I bought last August. i have put 5,500 km (about 3,500 miles) on it and loving it, riding from Burlington in the Greater Toronto Area and all around the scenic parts of SW Ontario and Niagara. It is great for all types of riding including into and around Toronto and I am heading off soon to Lake Placid/Adirondack Mountains area on some of this part of the continent's best and most spectacular roads. I love the machine, it is stable, strong and comfortable including on the highway. I have an issue with sensitive ears and have put a Givi aftermarket screen on that has taken away wind noise and am using good earplugs now, but the motor has an annoying pitch, especially when accelerating, that seems to get past the protections.

    How are you liking yours? Any long trips? i would be interested!

    Brian

    Cosmic Blue 2014 C600 Sport

    Just joined MOA. I recently purchased a cosmic blue 2014 C600 Sport, from our local BMW dealer as NEW (never registered, 15 miles on it). Previously had a Vespa GT200.
    I'm so satisfied with this Beemer! Great for short commutes or on highways, great handling and lots of creature comforts, like heated seats & grips, tire pressure monitor, etc. My only complaint is the windscreen is about 1-2" too short. the wind comes right over it and hits me right at eye level. I'm looking to modify this soon.

    A bad day on the C650 GT scooter is better than the best day at work

    BMW has there's it might be about $100 but you may be able to find it on the Internet (I believe there is a link on this forum somewere) at a mega Site. I bought mine on ebay out of Italy for $40 then sold it when I downloaded the manual 7.5 giga bites. I then reduced it down to 2.5 giga bites. The specs a I am sure are the same on the 2012 and the 2016

    I bought a silver 2013 Sport five weeks ago. The local dealer had it sitting in the showroom with 3,500 km BMW Canada demo mileage on it and in virtually new condition. They are storing it for me until spring delivery. To say I can hardly wait is an understatement.

    Well I think a Vespa is a scooter but BMW insists on called the c650 by that term. We traded our 2012 for bigger bikes for riding two up but due to a left hand injury we are on a brand new white 2016 C650GT. It is snowing today so you see where that is going. I think these bikes are so under-rated but the detractors will be looking at the tail lights trying to understand what happened to them. backrest for passenger is waiting for us at the Oklahoma city dealership. Cannot wait to get back on the road. BTW, bought a white Klim K1200 helmet coincidentally which is an excellent 3 lbs. mt

    It was supposed to have been destroyed after BMW decided on the two wheel configuration; but a cop rescued this from a seized warehouse in NY.DSCN0394.JPGDSCN0393.JPG

    Who's out there

    I ride a 2016 C650GT in Frozen Bronze (whatever that is!). This is a replacement for my 2012 C650GT that was written off by insurance following a low speed crash last fall.

    The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
