I just can't believe I won!!! My older son took the message and when he showed it to me, you'd thought I had won the one million dollar lottery (Yahooooo!!). I entered a drawing at BMW-Ducati of Southern Colorado in Colorado Springs for a chance to win a free IPOD. I wanted to go there anyway, because of the outstanding ladies of MotoFemina Cast. I wanted to see the F650GS that they were in competition for. As it turned out, the dealership didn't have that motorcycle at that time. It's sooo popular, they can't keep it in stock. Above is JoAnne awarding me the IPOD. I didn't get all the names of the people working there today, but thank you to everyone there and to BMW-Ducati of Southern Colorado
Here is all the cool stuff that came in the box. I can't wait to start downloading all the songs I want to hear while driving my Yamaha V-Star 650 motorcycle *smile* down the road. Is this motorcycle too cool or what? Above is the BMW F650GS. This time they had one, but it's awaiting its new owner (sob). Eric was kind enough to let me hop on and see how it fits. It was lowered at the factory for the new owner (which isn't me *sob, sniff*). I do really like this motorcycle, but even lowered it's still about 2" too high. I guess, too, when I do get the next bike I also want more cc's then 650. I have seen a lot of people on tippy toes this summer, so I can't believe there isn't a market out there for shorter bikes. I just can't see how slimming two inches within the frame can be that hard. With all the brilliant designs these engineers do, come on!!
This motorcycle is neat, because it's dual road/dirt and the sport bikes are a little lighter in weight. I do love the sporty look. This motorcycle is even more awesome in person. The photo doesn't do it just. You'll have to go into your local dealership and see these for yourself. When I put my feet up on the pegs it fits perfect and is very comfortable. There are also some other pretty awesome motorcycles there, too. Just way too tall for me *pout!*.
So listen up BMW Motorcycles Corporation!!! You need to design a motorcycle just like the F650GS, but for shorter people like me (5'1-1/2" high) and with more cc's. So here's the challenge and if you need a model and tester, I'd be happy to help you out (especially for testing) *wink, wink*. Oh, a model in purple would be nice.
