We succumbed to the draw of the dealership. This is one downside to rainy weekends. Yes, I now know I can go ride in the rain, but I'm not feeling that great today, so what better way to spend the afternoon than to run up to Salem and play with the lonely bikes in the showroom. Apologies for the stock photos. I can't bring myself to take out the camera in the showroom.
This was my second close look at the BMW f650...or G650...with a 650...or was it an 800...I just call them the single and the twin. This one is the twin. I've been told this bike is everything I"m looking for, nimble and fun, but I'm having a hard time getting excited about it.
We made the mistake of not leaving right then and there. I haven't looked at the CBR 600rr. Well, I've looked at it in passing (oooh, pretty bike), but I haven't been silly enough to actually sit on one. What do I need with an rr bike anyway? It's half the weight and twice the horse power of my Suzi. I almost crashed right there, standing still on the showroom floor. At least it was carpeted.
Of course they have a great deal on a used one...sigh.
Worry not, we didn't bring it home.
Oh and they had that new BMW S1000rr. oooh pretty bike!
