BMW Other description

2001 BMW F650GS Dakar with 1179 original miles, never abused, and tastefully modified.I purchased this bike from the original owner a couple of years ago, with roughly 700mis on it at the time.The bike has always been babied, and always maintained.That said, I have not had that much time to ride the Dakar (obviously), but when I have, it has always been exhilarating.Great sounds, wonderful riding position, and a lot of fun both on and off road.In the time that I have had the bike, I have done the following:A&S "The Big One" service kit installedYuasa batteryEBC front brake rotorDID gold chainPIAA's with custom mounts that I made (without modification to the motorcycle)SW-Motech center standDunlop 606 tires with about 150 mis on them.I also removed the majority of the decals that originally came on the bike (personal taste), I painted the gauge surround and windshield matte black, and also removed the skid plate/belly pan.With respect to collectors, though, I would be willing to include a new set of decals, the skid plate, and a new gauge surround if the reserve on the bike is met. I believe that the windshield , at least new, is no longer availableNew fork seals (uninstalled), and a very comprehensive service and repair CD, are included as well.The Dakar is cosmetically and mechanically excellent, with only 1 minor scuff on the bodywork, left of the headlamp (see photo) and 1 on the same side, but positioned below the saddle, and unseen.Otherwise, I cannot imagine a nicer 2001 Dakar that has actually been ridden, albeit occasionally, over the past 13yr.This motorcycle is the real deal, a true collectors piece. Please feel free to contact me with requests for more pictures and/or descriptive

Here are a few things going on around the Forum Network: Animated Engines plivez, a new member of the forums (welcome Plivez!) has a website where he animates motorcycle engines in flash. It’s pretty interesting to see the way a Evo and Twin Cam V twin Harley Davidson engine works. He also has up the crazy BMW flat twin R100 motorcycle engine which seems more complicated then an engine should be!

The future of law enforcement?

THANKFULLY you're not looking at latest addition to the US Police force's motorcycle fleet - it's the futuristic machine that featured in the 2009 movie "Star Trek" .It's being prepped before being suspended mid-air in the "Born to be Wild: Vintage and Celebrity Motorcycles" exhibition in the Reagan Library's Air Force One Pavilion in Simi Valley, California. Looks a bit like a BMW R1200S, don't you think?

I was never a fan of mathematics in high school. This would be of no surprise to any of my teachers or parents, I assure you. My justification was that none of my instructors could explain the practical applications for such numerical oddities as logarithms, permutations, or binomial theorem.
