Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Bye-bye Beemer

Steve Farrell, 13 October 2011 16:34

Like many motorcyclists I'm sure, every day I'm watched through my window by my little lad as I get on my bike and ride off to work. So I'm not the only one who will be a little sad that BMW has asked for the G650GS back early. Readers of my recent updates may remember me complaining about the early ...

Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT - Turning up the volume

Simon Relph, 14 September 2011 12:57

I recently picked up the first pair of Remus Hexacone slip on silencers in the country (www.performanceparts-ltd.com) to go on the BMW K1600GT and decided it might be fun to time just how long it takes the remove the old and fit the new. The titanium silencers have a carbon outlet, and are road legal with removable baffles – all ...

Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT SE - Rain? What rain?

Simon Relph, 12 August 2011 12:31

Since I took delivery of the bike, it literally has not rained, or when it has I have been tethered to my desk in the MCN office. I have played with the fly-by-wire throttle settings (dynamic, road and ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Corrosion sets in

Steve Farrell, 09 August 2011 13:28

I really like my G650GS. So I’m massively disappointed to report that the paintwork doesn’t seem to be up to much. Corrosion is already beginning to appear in places and it’s not yet had to endure a single winter. A BMW spokesman said: ‘Obviously I can’t really comment on the cause of the corrosion until the bike has been inspected. ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

Steve Farrell, 03 June 2011 10:12

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - 'Quality'

Steve Farrell, 21 April 2011 16:46

I’ve just spent my first weekend with the BMW G650GS, after taking delivery of it on Friday, and the word I want to say is: quality. You’d never guess this is one of the cheapest big bikes you can buy. The screen is as blemish-free as glass, so much so that I can attach my sat nav with a suction ...
