Here is a shot of my recently acquired little BMW, a 2005 F 650 GS, to be specific.
Note the additions of a larger windscreen and a top box. The box is large enough to hold a full face helmet. I also got a liner bag for it so when I commute I take the bag out, put the helmet in, and head to the office.
Did I mention a true 60 MPG on regular unleaded the first time I checked, despite some 80 mph dashing on the HOV lanes? This will be my commuter thoughout the warm months.
