A buddy (260# and his friend 120# ish) rode a F650 US route 50 coast to coast and back a few years ago. He said it was a bit cramped
Funduro....Isn't that a popular dish at the Mexican restaurant? I'm all in on the wet burritos myself. Not to mention those tasty refreshing adult beverages.John Henry
<br />here is it's cousin aprilia pegaso two carbs five valve head true dual exhaust, I owned this bike for several years great fun
So I finally pulled the trigger on a “new” bike. I have owned a 2016 Triumph Street Triple since new, but never bonded with it after 5 years and 25K miles. It never gave me a bit of trouble, but was frankly boring and uncomfortable for long trips. Only somewhat fun if you played Racer-Boy on it, so I was pretty sure it would kill me one day. The Triumph is now gone. Replaced with a 1999 BMW F650 Funduro. A 650 cc thumper with the 19” front spoked wheel and dual sport tires. Enough luggage space to supply a regiment. These early F650s were actually made by Aprilia in Italy. Thus now all my running bikes are Italian—Guzzi V7, Ducati 900SS, and now my little Funduro.
I knew that the BMW650 had been made by a few different companies, I didn't realize that Aprillia made them for a few years, was that an engine of their own design and production or one supplied by Rotax?
You should have bought an Aprilia, they are easier to work on than the Beemer. You have to take less stuff apart. Better engineered all the way around.
You're gonna hate that thing . Dusty
Mostly because of the grief he will get from us. And the rally atendees letting it fall over in the gravel
There’s a funny story on ADV about a guy who just bought a BMW Prescott and apparently the fuel strips are faulty and misleading. Does yours have fuel strips?PS...only Ducatis are allowed to fall over at the rally, but only if there are a minimum of 10 people standing around to witness the event!
Nope. No fuel strips. Just a basic petcock. Like all my bikes from the 70s.Some of you whippersnappers are probably too young to know what a fuel tank petcock is.
