Came home last Friday with my 2019 850GS with 270 miles on the clock. Dealer said it was a "media" bike.
Some small scuffs on the right plastics, muffler, and bar end weight, but nothing I need to fix or care about.
Only mod so far was adding Barkbuster hand guards. Trying to decide about luggage ATM. I don't think I take enough trips to warrant expensive hard cases.
I rode (and still have it, plan to keep her!) a 2005 Yamaha FZ6. Amazing bike, just can't part with it. Trade in value was less that she's worth to me.
Interestingly, I went to the dealer to possible upgrade to the 2020 Tracer GT. 850GS caught my eye...most of the guys I ride with have BMW's...one 10 minute test ride later and I was sold!
Thanks for having me, looking forward to sharing adventures/maintenance/stories. The FZ6 forum helped me with so many things, I end up checking it every day. Plan to do the same here!
