    My 2009 F650GS has never shifted very well, feeling notchy and not nearly as smooth as other BMWs that I have owned. However, it does shift positively and I have never missed a shift.

    I don't completely get the "stay at home" concept. I can see that idea during the 1970's gas crisis when fuel was really hard to get. In my case, I live by myself, when I go out riding I don't stop...

    To my knowledge, the UK has never left the Pound. And speaking of the Pound, once the virus hit the UK, the value of the Pound has dropped in just a few days from about $1.29 USD to the current...

    I seem to have this problem every 10K miles or so on my F650GS. The rotor was not warped. I believe the pulsing is the result of friction pad material building up on the brake disc. Try cleaning the...

    I average around 65 mp(US)g while riding my F650GS and that is with 10% ethanol fuel. The few times I have managed to find E0, my gas mileage went up to 70 mpg. [:)]

    Keep in mind that the new Rotella T6, fully-synthetic oil, in the blue bottle, has a viscosity of 5W-40, which does not meet the oil requirements of our F800-series engines. For my F650GS, I stick...
