Hi all,

After a few years trundling around on a big old R1150R I decided to try something a bit lighter so I recently purchased a 2016 650GT with just 2000 miles, in black and white and I think it's quite striking.
Just about to fit a lowering kit and looking forward to puting some miles on the clock.
I like browsing forums for useful snippets.
Does anyone do a workshop manual for the MK3?

Happy riding everyone

I think you're at least the second BMW owner to come over from the "dark-side"....

Oh, NO! Am I still partially on the dark side given that I have a BMW K75S?

Welcome to the forum. I just joined as well. I looked at a used 2002 BMW R1150R before buying the Versys from eBay. The BMW was a very nice machine, but i wasn't wild about the vibration on the one I tested. Made my hands numb after a while. I'm looking forward to delivery of the 2009 Versys with 10,000 miles. Hope it's great!

Ah, I thought that might be the case. Don't let that information spread too widely - my wife might catch wind of it.

@johnboy51 Let me know how you do with the lowering kit - been considering it for my bike but managed without so far! How tall are you?
