So I decided that I’d like to get my first motorcycle.
I thought about what I want to do with it, and I decided that I want it to go everywhere, and I want it to do highway speeds without too much effort.
So I decided on a dual-sport (or is it an enduro?)
I settled on a BMW because it seems they are highly regarded. I decided on the F650GS as it seems the right size, and the R1200GS seems like a whole lotta bike (how do you off-road with a 1200?).
Is an F650GS too much bike for a new rider? I’ve bombed around on dirt bikes a few times without trouble and my regular driving skills are just fine. I’m 36 (not inclined to ride like a moron), 6’1", 210 lbs.
I’m committed to going “all-in” in terms of lessons, theory, practice, gear, etc… would the F650GS be too much bike for me, do you think?
