    Not quite its intended purpose. Looks goofy, but sooo much fun. 250 lbs, almost 60 hp, sticky tires, squishy suspension, thumper torque. It's like taking a Group B rally car, set up for tarmac stages, to a DTM race. If I were a better rider, I'd destroy the open singles class with this bike. I've only taken a third place trophy so far.

    This is my '06 KTM 560 SMR, factory-built supermoto race bike. I put in an Ohlins shock with an RCS titanium spring. Original shock/spring was 5,171 grams (more than the scale's 5 Kg limit). The weight savings equates to about two good bulky bowel movements.

    so my mini-ninja wasn't stock when i got it; had rear sets, grip pads on the tank, and a windshield for a taller rider and i was happy with those so i left them alone.

    my first round of mods got finished today:
    - 1lb lithium battery
    - rear set delete
    - undertail from hotbodies to get rid of all the ugly DOT lighting
    - license plate relocate
    - shorty slip-on from danmoto



    should be about 20lbs (5% of the total weight) off the bike, and a lot of it fairly high up. didn't think i'd notice much difference but it's there. it also sets off car alarms and does that delicious pop/crackle when you drop throttle and grab clutch.

    Sweet looking bikes from what I've seen so far, but that exhaust has got to absolutely cook the inner right thigh

    I know these bikes are very popular now. Just not sure it's worth it if most ppl use them mainly for staying on pavement.
    Yes I do. I agree most I have seen spend all their lives on the road, but I have put hidenau k50 knobbies on mine, and a new heavy duty bash plate to replace the plastic garbage it came with. I recently picked up some off road light to help see critters on the trail at night.

    So far I have only spent about 10% of my time off road camping, but I hoping to do another trip before summers end.

    I plan to do the two “local” sections of the tcat trail next year, once I do some suspension upgrades.

    They work surprisingly well on road, and off, although the stock suspension is suspect for hard riding.

    I went for a run into the mountains a few weeks back in mine, with a few buddies.

    Make sure it’s a 08 and newer f650gs and not the early one that was built until 05. That one was a single, and while the later versions ,03-05, were pretty good, they are ball numbingly buzzy.

    The f650gs twin runs 87 octane compared to the f800gs. Same motor, different tune.

    these pop up as basket cases every so often on the cheap here. I've thought about it, and also looked into k75s for a bit....hmmm hmm

I only have my old shitbox motorcycle (also registerd in RI) to base it off of so I have no idea what insurance on a newer bike would be.
    I pay $88 a month for full coverage (collision and comprehensive) on a 2017 FZ09, clean driving record, 9k miles a year, 25 years old, 1 year of having my M1 license.
    I did pay 130$ per month for the first year, then it dropped to $88 after i turned 25. I need to pay it off and take off comprehensive.
