Trading bikes - advice please

Eh up,I'm looking at changing my little enduro type BMW G650 X country as frankly it doesn't fit with my style of riding any more and things like the fuel tank being too small, too vibey, etc.I'm looking at a Suzuki GSX650F as a decent all rounder with a riding position that won't hurt my back. Does anyone know of any issues with this bike or have any recommendations for something similar in approach / price that might be better?Just for reference my current bike is about 140-150kg with 53bhp, 60nm torque and a 0-60 of about 5 seconds, doing ...

Wibers Federbein

Anyone used suspension from this company?They do a shock for my g650 x country and after a nice long run on crap roads with it doing its thing where it bottoms out and kills your back I'm considering it.I've looked into setting it up right but it's apparently a big problem with the OE part.

Monster or BMW - any advice/pro's and cons?

I am about to buy my first 'bigger' bike and am looking at the Monster 696 and new BMW G650 (both suit my short height!).  I love the look and feel of both bikes although ultimately it's the Ducati I want to end up with (at some stage).  My question is, has anybody got any advice or pros/cons about either bike to help with my decision?  In a way I feel I should get the beemer as it's the more 'sensible' option and I could get some all-round riding experience on it before buying a Ducati.  But does being sensible ...

BMW G650GS (2011-current)

The GS650GS is BMW%X92s entry-level adventure bike and successor to the old G650 and F650GS single. Because it%X92s essentially a tweaked version of those, development costs have been low, making it not just the cheapest BMW you can buy but one of the cheapest big bikes. It%X92s competent on trails, but with a low seat height and exactly 47bhp on...

NEW BIKE!!

Hi, i'm nearly 17 and am looking for a 600cc or 650etc, and then restrict it to 33hp. Not a 250cc. I'm quite small for my age, around 5 foot"8. And i weigh only about 9 stone. I was looking at a Honda Hornet. But it looks pretty big for my size and maybe a bit to powerful- i'm pretty sensible and so wouldn't push it. I was also looking at a BMW G650 Xcountry, it only weights 150kg, and the seat it low and its a 650cc. What should i go for?? Would the honda be right? or too ...
