Yep. I just decided that I'm going to get myself a motorcycle license in the new year and along with it, a BMW G650, because I thought, well I love riding my mountain bike around, I should get something with an engine - that'd be cool!

I looked into it and getting a license in Ontario (where I'm from) is fairly easy. Take a written, get a learners, take a safety course, avoid the annoying driving test, then get a full license in 18months. Pretty street forward. (haha)

    You'll love it until the first time you pick it up off a fire road.

      Why would I take it on a fire road? It's not a dual sport. (It's got regular road slicks)

      For off-road/fire-road running, I'd go for an R60 - if one can be found in good shape. And if I did get one of those, I'd be screaming "I'M STEVE MCQUEEN YO!"

      ;)

        Sorry - you mentioned mountain bike and I just assumed G/S. I had the F650 G/S and did do some off roading, until I picked it up off said fire road. I went to street tires then too, and it was a great ride. Enjoy!

          ahhhh I see now. Failure on my part of being clear.

          Anyhow... this is just wishful thinking right now. Need a good paying job first, before I can afford that Bavarian awesomeness.
