I ordered my bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: January 23, 2007, 02:02:55 pm »
Yes, I did it.I took the plunge.

I ordered my F650GS.(Sorry Groenie but ,yes I tasted the BMW and I bought it.

I have to say I looked at the KLE500 as Shark suggested BUT it is only a 500 and sorry the Transalp is too heavy.

BUT what a battle to get a GS.There is no stock.Auto Bavaria in Pretoria was so nice to assist and there is a red one on the floor on hold till tomorrow morning 9am.If the guy doesn't take it it will say"SOLD to Miena Moo" :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

If it is taken then I have to wait a week. :cry:
I think it will be worth the wait although I won't sleep for a week.

Will post pictures as soon as I get my baby.

Good stuff, Miena Moo!!!

I'm so glad you did not listen to the "the bike is too heavy" posts.  You are supposed to RIDE it and not CARRY it.  I think the folks at Hills and Dales are going to get a bit gatvol of the GS riders going up and down their precious roads. :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

Lets go ride our little green bikes to mourn the loss of another fine soul to the BMW clan.

Would love to, but it's the smallest Wild Dog lady's B'day today, and we're going for a ride now and then off to Spur....

So MM you need to start practising patience, understand Groenie doesn't do more than 100 km/h on tar.
