I'm finding my maxi scooter a bit boring. It's comfy and practical but duuuuuuuuuuul
I use it for commuting 95% of the time but my commute is changing to mostly motorway and a bit more poke would be nice, whilst still keeping the 70mpg+ the Piaggio gets.
Don't bother telling me to get a Jap bike because I don't want one, and on the face of it the BMWs look spot on. I might be able to stretch to the 800cc twin '650' but I'll be buying used and the G650 looks closer to what I want - Light, slim, pokey in traffic and a high riding position combined with frugality and hopefully a bit of fun.
So has anybody had one, either the old F650 or the new G650, or the twin?
What are they like for a 25 mile commute? Reliabe? Fun? Practical?
