    AFAIK, no one is censoring or deleting topics. If there are few threads on a particular topic it is probably only because few people have an interest or experience to share.

    Maybe you need to start the conversation!

    That doesn’t happen here on the MOA forum.

    A more productive approach.

    This is the situation where you "shoot" the non-messenger. Just not as many folks riding F's in general. My experience has been to post, be it a question or comment and have no replies at all. Of course, my topics may be not be noteworthy, but rather think it's such a small market share, at this time (especially these 850 models), generates few if any comments. I would guess as the group ages further into the "give me a smaller bike to ride" crowd, postings will increase

    My take of the whole F-Twin thing is when introduced, the forum here was “all boxer”. I think the F-Twin seemed to appeal to a (perhaps) “younger” crowd. Move ahead 10 or so years and we watch the rapid evolution if the water cooled Boxer which has seemed to take over. Somewhere in the last couple of years the 310 series has come around, especially for BMW enthusiasts wishing for a lighter, more maneuverable “BMW branded” bike.

    Anyway, the postings of the F-Twins and the 310’s seem to be running the same either side of the favored Boxer motor configuration.......as new model introductions go.

    Whatever you ride in the BMW series, post it up as all the posts help someone.

    Of course, YMMV

    I suspect that there are many on this forum that own multiple versions of BMWs. For example, between Annie and I, we have owned four F bikes; we currently have an F800GS in addition to two LC Boxers and a Ural boxer. So just post your questions, observations, quips and quibbles and you just might start a conversation.

    I love my F850GSA. It has everything the "big" bikes have at less cost and an easier to handle package for me.

    I have the low chassis though and am researching options for getting a center stand or just buying a rear stand for the bike so I can do simple maintenance. For me, there's a lot of F850GSA threads because there's very little aftermarket support for the bike....especially for the low chassis model.

    Are you looking for more/specific information about the F850GS/F750GS or, are you curious about what extra features the GSA has which the GSes don't have? Or...?

    And please...give this discussion a better title than "???" with a text that explains a bit more what you are looking for.

    I've been thinking about that as well. So, I've gone ahead and added some context to the title.

    SW Motech makes a short center stand for low suspension F bikes. My wife got hers on Twisted Throttle.

    My wife traded her 2014 Yamaha FZ09 for a 2019 F750 GS and she loves it! She especially loves the suspension versus her old bike and all of the creature comforts. ABS, traction control, beautiful TFT display and heated grips.
