BMW F650GS -->  Kawasaki Ninja 250.  Bigok

I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't been forced to by injury....but it wound up being a fantastic move for me.   Inlove


The heck?

If you're as wee as your picture implies, I just cannot imagine you on a GS. I'm 6'1" and my father's GS feels long in the legs to me.

Pretty damned incredible you on that horse  EEK!

Sold an FJR and bought a DR-Z S.  Bigok

But - I still have larger bikes in the stable.  I've put 12,000 miles on the DR-Z and I can say with certainty I would not use it as a primary ride unless my rides were much shorter than they tend to be.

I may die with nothing to show for it but there will be a heck of a garage sale.

I'm 5'1".  The F650GS twin I had was the low chassis and it was pretty bad ergonomically.  My F650GS (thumper version; not a low chassis) was actually pretty comfortable. I didn't flatfoot, of course, but I don't even flatfoot the Ninjette. Lol

ZX6R to a WR250X.  Roads are torn up and there are too many homes to open up a sportbike anywhere around here.  Lots of gravel roads, too.  Nearest racetrack is a 4 hour drive away instead of 4 tracks within 2 hours' drive, but there is a go-kart track and 2 MX tracks within 1 hour's drive.
