The f700gs is the bike that I ride, best bike that I ever owned. Great riding and handling, even in strong winds, lots of torque, like a Cummins diesel, and great fuel economy. But it won't crawl over rough terrain like a TW200 will.

I noticed they are adding side lights by law. Is that becoming a US law? I've never noticed but do some motorcycles currently have side lights?

There was a BMW 650cc XCountry a few years ago that I thought was cool. Kind of the classic old school scrambler look -- or maybe it was a skinny tired TW look.

If I could find a decent used one......

I seriously like the look of that Triple Black GSA, although I think it would look better if the crash bars matched the frame.

I wish they would lose the goofy "R1200" graphic that they plaster across the cowling. So much effort over decades going into the design of these bikes and they just had to go and slap a big dumb sticker on there.

The f700gs is on my short list,

Glad you like it, though I liked the BMWs before the onset of all the electronics.

I rode this one for five years....didn't even have ABS:




And and this one for a year or two....had ABS that nearly killed me... :eek:



Wish they would build a modern version of an airhead.
