BMW F 650GS Dakar

This was my first BMW, Thought I would give this adventure bike stuff a try.  You know it looked comfortable and capable.  And the Dakar design and the BMW name, it would surely be great!
But I soon found out it was not very good off road.  Compared to all the Honda XL600s that I had owned, it was heavy and terrible off road.  Ok but on road was it good?  Well, no it was smooth but it is a dog. It is so underpowered that even at 60mph it was sad.

OK so after only 6 months it had to go.  Here are the pics from when I sold it.

My first BMW was a big disappointment!
The Honda XL650 is superior in every way.
The Suzuki DR650 is superior in every way.
Even Kawasaki KLR650 is really a better bike.
