Hello the world!
In my toadish opinion, the Suzuki DR650 is the superior motorbike when compared to the newest F650GS.
It is far less costly to purchase and maintain.
The fuel tank is in the correct place, and therefore, easy to replace with a larger unit, or repair in the event of a (small) leak.
It has an easily adjustable shock mount to lower the bike 1.5 inches (34 mm?).
It is air cooled, and not prone to radiator punctures (no radiator! LOL!).
It has a carb, and not BMW's notoriously finicky fuel injection. And sorry, but that is the truth as countless owners have stated on various web sites throughout the internet.
It is more than fast enough, returns excellent fuel economy, and did I mention it costs much, much less that the F650GS? Use the money saved to ride around the world, eh?
No, this does not mean that the Toad abhors the Beemer, but rather I think it over priced and under spec'd.
And yes, the Toad doth consider the F650GS to be the prettier of these two bikes. But I would sooner have an R1150GS Adventure, a Capo Nord, or a Tiger over the little GS.
"Sigh"...Or the stunning AfricaTwin. And truth be told, I am not very good at off road riding yet, but I am working on that (ever the poseur am I, LOL!).
Take care, and have fun with what ever you want to get. That is perhaps the most important part of the plan. That you be happy with your purchase.
But the Toad chose a DR650.
The Lord keep you all safe for His return.
