The UFO of BMW bikes

The UFO of BMW bikes Empty The UFO of BMW bikes

I own a 2003 BMW F650 CS scarver. One of the most attractive sides to the bikes besides its fuel consumption is the futuristic ugly design. According to the designers, the bike was initially designed for city commuting and female riders. But BMW tried to create an eye catcher and "funky" motorcycle, with all kinds of practical accessories. I use the bike for that reasons, daily commuting. But for some reason this bike is totally unknown to the public. And everywhere I go people stop me and ask me what it is, and what what... I had it up for sale once and this guy came to look at it. By his surprise he asked me, why doesn't it look like a Dakar? As soon as people hear F650 they connect it to the Dakar. Last week I was filling up, and this motorcyclist stop next to me also to refuel. He rode a BMW 1200RT, but he was kitted in all off road gear. Neck brace, MX boots. Chest plates, but with a System 5 helmet. Quite a funny combination, but... he got off the bike and walked over to me. "Dimmit sonny, now this is a classic you are riding, what is it a '61 or '62 model?" now that is the best one I have heard in a long time. I mean in the sixties bikes looked like a bicycle with an engine, and how on earth could he make that connection.
