Just purchased a 2012 Adventure 650 and let me tell you that it is a great bike. I average almost 50 miles to the gallon and it is a very comfortable bike and handles great. I like the luggage as I can get all my stuff in the two bags. I also added a large top box which helps with carrying all my stuff. The price was great and it is very nimble. I replaced my BMW GS with this bike and I am glad I did. Go test ride one of these and you will know what I mean.
