Thanks guys. I wish I had a better camera. My cheap phone messed up the exposure on the panorama shots.

These were taken at Beechmont Mountain. About 40 minutes from my house.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

looks not dis-similar to the views from my place....... you can hear the banjo's loud and clear across the valley of an evening, over that side of the valley they don't have quad bikes, they have cousin catchers
short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

south of the border, down melbourne way

I remember wanting a W650 when I was a teenager and then Kwai quit importing them here. Like someone else said, they’d were a few years too early for the retro bike craze here. Looks like loads of fun.

Yeah the 650 was too early. They hold their value here well.

They definitely hold their value here as well. If you find one for sale it’ll run you about $4500.

Never sold the W800 here.  Was always a fan of the 650 but it commands a high price used.  There is one advertised on Kijiji in all of Canada.  2001 with 27,000KM on it for CAD$5,300.

Lot of dough for a 17 year old bike, but about the same as a 45 year old BMW Airhead, so who knows - maybe the W650 will hold its value.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Yeah only 2 years of them for you lot. There is a German shop that sells heaps of cool parts for them. I have seen one with 65hp and a W800 with 80hp.

Not going to go crazy on this one. Just the standard stuff for a fuel injected bike.
It can Do The Ton in its stock form.
Still in love with it. Maybe in a few years I will go for the 814cc high compression kit.
