Wifes BMW F650GS

As some of you know I picked up a used GS650FS for my wife as her second bike. After a few weekends of washing, waxing, replacing parts, adding parts etc. its finally done and ready to go. Chris (my wife) has taken it out several times and loves it. She said it took some getting used to (sitting straight up with handlebars vs. clip-ons) but now that she is used to it she loves it. :bigok:

Items added to make it “her” bike are

1) Barkbusters hand guards with storm deflectors
2) Barkbusters handlebar risers
3) Givi E45 trunk
4) OEM handlebar mount cover
5) OEM handlebar warmer switches (in mount cover)
6) Custom windshield complements of the owner of MikesShields ;o)
7) New OEM turnsignals (the old ones were iky?)
8) Handlebar mounted waterproof switch for PIAA off road lights
9) Blue LED mod to instrument cluster

That’s about all I can think of at the moment. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, hopefully we will get some better ones this weekend. We are headed to the Porterville Rally tomorrow morning bright and early. :thumbsup:

I had three of these- put 50k on one of them. It will never let you down. It may buzz you to death on the interstate, but you will give out before it will!
Look great.

Very nice, I had one of those before my V and can't say much bad about it. It was a fine bike. I thought it was smooth but I also had a 450 supermoto in the garage at the same time and with that bike you gauged your speed by how many of a fixed object you saw. 2 speed limit signs? 35mph.
