Hi all, Wife and i just found this site. We both ride dual sports are are quite familiar with this area. Anyone interested in riding this area? We can show you lots of interesting back roads. We are good with any bikes and are fine with beginners.
Welcome. Nice bikes and pics. How do you like that 650x country? I was really interested in those for a while when I first started looking for my first bike.

The x-country is interesting. Lots of very useable torque. We bought it used for my wife. Really tall seat height. We bought a custom seat for it and it still sits as high as my KTM. When you sit on it the suspension settles about an inch and a half. Still tall for my wife even with riding boots on. She handles it fine and the ergo's fit her like a glove. We did buy the adjustable pull clutch lever to help with the fine tune. The biggest downfall is the 2 1/2 gallon fuel tank. The plus is it averages 60 plus mpg. If BMW hadnt dropped it from production the aftermarket would have really loved this bike. After we bought it BMW came out with a low seat height G 650 GS. Thats where we will go if the wife ever gets rid of this bike.
Oh and the cat was just going on a quick trip to the vet.
