Apple Computer may have “evangelists”; BMW and WVCS have George DeMoss.
George is someone you would call an “experienced” rider, spanning over 60 years straddling 7 Harley Davidsons, 1 Moto Guzzi, 2 Ducatis,1 MV Augusta, 2 Vespas, 1 BMW R1000RT, 1 BMW K1200GT, and now a BMW C650GT.
“What I like most about my C650GT is everything: I have motorcycle performance without any heat, tank mounting, shifting and very controllable ABS.
My C650GT is averaging 51 mpg while pulling a 549 pound bike with an automatic transmission (plus me at around 200 lbs). I salute BMW once again for pulling it off. I am not a knee dropper however, I assure you a knee dropper could take this bike to the track anyday. The tranny holds the bike back on compression down to about 15 mph. Also, you can rev up the bike and then the centrifugal clutch torques up and you surge ahead. This works at speed also. If you are going 70 mph and hit the gas, the torque jumps in. It is like downshifting without the hassle of clutch and gear change.
One of the most amazing features is the lumbar support. You sit in the same position as on a Harley with highway pegs. To compensate for this there are Corbin, Harley seats with backrests, etc. This C650GT lumbar support provides better support. I know as I had a Road King with a Corbin seat and back rest until I got my C650GT. The seat is amazing also. I had my two prior BMWs seats altered by Bill Meyer (a fantastic job); not needed with this C650GT’s standard seat.”
George did his research and selected the BMW Small Sport Softbag (77 49 9 708 880) as the perfect one-does-it-all accessory for his needs. This Softbag in silver and black has 4 zippered compartments and a huge main compartment, carrying strap which can convert to a backpack and an easy grip top handle.
“I use the bike two to three days a week to ride to work and attempt to ride between two to three hundred miles on the weekend. I currently own a large eBay business utilizing over 45 years of advertising and marketing experience.I had haunted West Valley Cycle for years, always wanting a BMW motorcycle. About five years ago I purchased my first BMW, an R1200RT from West Valley Cycle. I just purchased my third BMW from West Valley after checking the other three local dealers. West Valley is now and always has been a family owned business. As a customer you are remembered, treated with courtesy and always leave with a sense of satisfaction. Their pricing for both sales and service is fair and competitive. You do not have to front the cost of a sales manager, service writer or service manager.All transactions are on a one to one basis. The staff listens to what you have to say and responds accordingly. I strongly support them as the place to go for purchasing of BMW cycles, parts or service. Once you experience (the oldest BMW dealership in the U.S.) West Valley Cycle Sales, you won't want to go anywhere else.”
