    That's kind of interesting speculation. I don't see the Chinese...

    Interesting that he found inoperable recharging stations and failures of his own equipment. Getting free charges at Hostels and hotels doesn't give the comparable costs of the trip.

    I'm not sure what to make of the limited capacity of recent gas tanks. My ST had 4.3 gallons, I think. The G650GS has 3.7 gallons. My new F750GS has 4 gallons.
    All of my air heads had a 6 gallon...

    To answer the how much question. It was $15000 out the door. I've never been much of a haggler.

    I do have one fellow interested in the G650GS at $4K. I'll give him the saddle cases too. Along...

    I replaced my deer struck F800 with a 2013 G650GS. It's a fun little bike. Too bad the gas tank is so puny, 3.7 gallon.
